Following rounds of flooding downpours across the Midwest earlier this week, a sinkhole opened up on a street in Kane County, Illinois, Tuesday morning.
According to Kane County Sheriff Lt. Pat Gengler, a woman from Elgin was driving her son when they fell into the sinkhole. They were discovered when a pickup truck drove over the car.
