A Manchester, New Hampshire driver got the morning commute from hell today, cruising down Beech Street and straight into a large sinkhole.

Helicpoter footage of the incident shows a Kia Rio held up at each end by the rim of the sinkhole, huge chunks of asphalt and a gas line below. Firemen had to carry the woman driving the car to safety, as the sinkhole was still full of water, which was entering the car, reports WCVB TV of Boston.

The sinkhole was caused by a burst water line beneath the road. The driver thought the sinkhole was just a puddle. She wasn't injured in the incident.
