CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Colorado sinkhole swallows SUV


A large sinkhole swallowed a car in suburban Denver as heavy rain and blustery winds pounded parts of the Front Range.

The Denver Post reports the sinkhole opened on a road in Sheridan on Tuesday, and the driver was able to get out without the help of police. The Sheridan Police Department tweeted a photo of the sinkhole with only part of the car peeking out of the water.

The National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings as intense weather developed in northeastern Colorado. Meanwhile, another round of storms brought mudslides to an area burned by a wildfire in southwest Colorado. U.S. Highway 550 near Durango was temporarily closed Tuesday as crews cleared debris that washed onto the road.

Similar weather patterns are expected in Colorado on Wednesday.
