A Lauderhill driver was reportedly attempting to flee the scene of a hit-and-run attack involving a 68-year-old woman when she slammed into a hydrant, filling the streets with gushing water. What happened next was a double shocker when a nearby car was suddenly swallowed by a sinkhole.

(SOURCE)  A wild police chase following a hit-and-run attack in a south Florida neighborhood ended with a smashed fire hydrant and a vehicle being swallowed by a sinkhole.

The crazed Lauderhill driver allegedly first ran over a 68-year-old woman before slamming into a hydrant, filling the streets with gushing water around 6 a.m. Monday, NBC Miami reported.

When officers arrived at the final crash scene that collared driver Ivanka Cancic, 50, the steady pooling of water caused a condominum parking lot’s corner to cave, partially swallowing a parked SUV.
