Sinkhole Snowplow - Watch: Driver escapes serious injury when his snowplow is nearly swallowed up by sinkhole

A snowplow operator who was clearing a road in New Jersey found his vehicle swallowed up by a sinkhole Tuesday morning.

The accident happened along Wordsworth Lane in Lopatcong Township in Warren County as a snowstorm moved out of the area around 7:30 a.m., said Mayor Tom McKay.

Instagram user MRLish456 captured the aftermath on Instagram. The township truck’s plow could be seen dangled above the truck, which was partially emerged in the hole.

The shaken driver of the plow managed to get out of his vehicle. He was taken to the hospital for observation, said McKay.

The township issued a warning for people to avoid the area. McKay said it could take hours to remove the truck.
