Checking your phone while driving can have disastrous consequences, but none more obvious than driving into a sinkhole.

Footage from Chinese television shows the ground suddenly give way in the middle of a street, creating a hole almost the whole way across one side.

Some time later, a scooter zoomed into view and drove straight into it without slowing down at all.

Both driver and bike disappeared into the hole just as another man frantically ran towards it in a doomed attempt to warn the driver.


He drove straight into it without slowing down at all, but was miraculously unhurt by the fall

The driver was reportedly distracted by his phone as he drove along and did not see the sinkhole until he was falling into it.

Fortunately the driver was miraculously unhurt despite what appeared to be a significant drop into the sinkhole.
