Massive sinkhole opens up in middle of Detroit street

Traffic was brought to a standstill when a massive sinkhole opened up in the middle of a busy road in the US city.
The hole – about 14 feet deep and eight feet wide – is thought to have appeared on Saturday and is now being repaired by workers.

Diane Cross, spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Transportation, told US network CBS: ’Well, unfortunately we are a pretty old city, we have older substructures underneath the roadways, and so at the moment we are not sure.
‘Age is always a factor – that’s going to be the kind of thing that’s going to have to be determined as well.’
No one is thought to have been injured by the formation of the sinkhole.
