Screen Shot 2016-04-03 at 10.51.08 PMHeavy rains in Alabama are being blamed for a sinkhole that took a Coca-Cola driver by surprise on Friday morning.

The 12-foot deep hole formed in the middle of an Autaugaville road during a downpour on Thursday night, wfla.com reports.

The next morning, the driver of the Coke van crashed into the sinkhole. The driver was not injured. Ten dump trucks of rocks and dirt were needed to fill in the hole.

Autaugaville is about 20 miles west of Montgomery.
