6-Foot Deep Pothole Stops Van Dead In Its Tracks

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 1:12 PM


Pothole season just got serious.

"The city need to pay me." That's the sentiment of David Broxton, who was driving his van around E. 79th and Superior yesterday when the ground beneath his vehicle gave way. Think those dinky, annoying potholes around town that jumble your car as you drive over them are bad? Try a 6 to 10-foot deep sinkhole.

NewsNet5 interviewed Broxton and he... well, he's looking to get paid. Ha makes a point of saying he "got hurt pretty bad." Good for you, David.

Cops showed up and taped off the area. Here's to betting this gets fixed might quickly.
