Sinkhole Vs Pothole In Florida; Pothole Wins

Updated: Tuesday, September 17 2013, 10:52 AM CDT

A sinkhole in a city near Jacksonville, Fla. swallowed a Smart Car and almost the driver with it.

The sinkhole opened up Monday evening in Ponte Vedra Beach.

"I saw some water on the road and I saw the security officer in his car at the corner," driver Madaline Keeble said. "I made my turn and 20 seconds later I had water in my Smart car up to my ears."

She quickly grabbed her belongings and escaped.

Apparently a water main break caused the sinkhole.
