Bus Swallowed By Sinkhole In Downtown Pittsburgh

Imagine riding on public transportation and the next thing you know, you're underground. That's what happens when a sinkhole opens up in the middle of a busy city and you're on a bus.

A massive sinkhole opened up in downtown Pittsburgh that swallowed up a public bus with a driver and one passenger on board. Both were able to get off the vehicle safely but it remains half in the ground as officials say they need a special crane to be brought in to remove the bus from the sinkhole.

Authorities say the bus is sitting on three major power lines. Those will need to be turned off before it can be removed. During that process, some downtown businesses could lose power, and at least one is already without water.
