We're not going to lie, this one starts a little slow, but by the end you'll have shivers running down your spine.

What you see in the video from the onset is only the very start of this sinkhole that eventually grows to swallow an entire line of cars, and a whole lot of additional real estate in residential Baltimore.

It's also a serious lesson in just how dangerous sinkholes can be. Keep watching the build-up until around 1:14 and the rest just becomes terrifying.

WATCH & WEEP... Can you imagine if this was your car?

A friend of mine who lives near that area says it was due to a retaining wall giving way. So not really a sinkhole issue.

"Sink hole"

I live a couple of miles from where this happened and would like to clarify a couple of things. First and foremost this was NOT a sink hole!! It was the result of a failure of a retaining wall. The wall is along the CXS tracks that lead to a tunnel that goes under some streets in Baltimore. The reason this occurred, aside from the massive amount of rain we received in a very short period of time, is a purely a result of when a Democratic government tries to tell a privately held corporation how to run its business. When CXS refused to pay to have a public road repaired, the local government refused to do it its self. After 15 years of complaints from residents along the road what you're seeing is the result of pure bureaucratic BS.

It's so so entertaining to listen to those people freak when it gets going good.
