A Rolls-Royce plunged into a sinkhole on a street in north-eastern China on Sunday when the road beneath it suddenly collapsed.
The incident was captured in a video that was circulated on social media after being posted on the Chinese streaming site Pear Video.
“I was waiting at the traffic light here and was just about to start the car at the turn of the green light when the road suddenly caved in,” the owner of the car said in the video.
The car had cost him over 5 million yuan (just over US$750,000), he said.
He did not appear to have sustained any injuries in the incident.
Tales of sinkholes suddenly opening up in the streets and swallowing passing vehicles or pedestrians have often made headlines in China.
