Nonetheless, if your vehicle is over five years old, itís always better to err on the side of caution, especially when youíre unsure what is going wrong.

We're not going to lie, this one starts a little slow, but by the end you'll have shivers running down your spine.
What you see in the video from the onset is only the very start of this sinkhole that eventually grows to swallow an entire line of cars, and a whole lot of additional real estate in residential Baltimore.
It's also a serious lesson in just how dangerous sinkholes can be. Keep watching the build-up until around 1:14 and the rest just becomes terrifying.
