Imagine just walking down the street and then suddenly it opens up, forming a sinkhole.

That’s what happened for two California police officers who were able to capture video of the street crumbling into a sewage line Monday.

The cause of the sinkhole hasn’t been determined but it is likely due to recent rains in the area.

So far, about 12 by 15 foot section of the roadway collapsed, leaving around a 15 to 20 foot deep hole.
