Shocking photos and videos shared online showed a vehicle in George in the Western Cape, almost completely submerged in a sinkhole.
The news was initially shared by Traffic SA on Twitter. Here’s what we know.
It’s alleged that the sinkhole formed after a pipe burst in the Genevafontein area in George. According to Municipal spokesperson Athane Scholtz, the water supply may be affected.
Scholtz explained that repairs to both the pipe and the tar road have been delayed due to the incident. She also calls on residents to use water sparingly.
