Video: SUV swallowed up by sinkhole in Easton

A home surveillance camera in Easton's south side captured the exact moment a large SUV was swallowed up by a sinkhole.

It happened Monday afternoon on James Street near the corner of Kleinhans Street.

Baudilio Ramirez,15, couldn't believe it unfolded feet from his front door.

"I was actually there. I saw it happen, so when the FedEx truck drove by and the Suburban drove past it that's when I saw. I heard a loud, crashing noise, just fell in the hole," he said.

In the video, you can see the FedEx driver stop as the SUV is sucked into the street. The driver is able to crawl out a window and rushes to the other side to help a passenger escape.

Heidi Ramirez says the couple inside the SUV lives right next door. Her Facebook Live post showed the vehicle being pulled from the 15-foot deep hole by a crane before public works crews began filling the gaping hole and making repairs.
