A burst underground pipe along Jalan Universiti, Petaling Jaya caused a sinkhole large enough to swallow a car, back up traffic, and cut off the water supply in the area

According to Sin Chew Daily, water flooded and covered the entire surface of the road yesterday morning, 2 October, causing an unsuspecting driver to drive right into the hole.

The vehicle was damaged but no injuries were reported.

The location of the sinkhole was in front of Sin Chew Daily's office.
