Road hole swallows car and driver

A motorist has been taken to hospital with neck injuries after his car fell into a large hole that appeared in a road in Nottinghamshire.

Police said one car fell into the hole on the B6034 Ollerton Road, just south of Worksop, on Thursday. Several other vehicles also hit the hole.

It is reported to be several metres wide and at least 1m deep.

The road has been partially closed by the Highways Agency, who are investigating the incident.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said: "We are investigating what caused the hole.

“At this stage we don’t know whether the driver went into a hole that had appeared over time or whether the road collapsed when the car went over it.”

The area has been a centre for mining for hundreds of years, though there is no indication as yet this caused the problem.
