Huge sinkhole on street of Rome gobbles up six cars

Rome: An examination have been conducted concerning a 10-meter (30-foot) - wide sinkhole that gobbled up about six cars on a residential road in Rome.

The incident took place on Wednesday night. Nobody was injured in the collapse at Balduina neighbourhood; however families in adjacent buildings were evacuated earlier after being cautioned about the collapse.

The local media said authorities had put a property owner and the organization dealing with construction along the street under investigation on Thursday.

Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi arrived at the spot and observed that the sinkhole, which seemed to shave off the whole side of the street, happened at a dynamic development site, and that the situation is under control.
