Calling the boss after the company vehicle has been in an accident is never easy, especially after it’s fallen into a sink hole on the Fourth of July. We can only imagine the conversation.
“I said the van was swallowed by a sink hole.”
“Are you serious?”
“Yes, it’s at the bottom of a 20-foot hole.”
Flooding brought on by recent heavy rain in Virginia was to blame for taking down the mini-van owned by Prince William Medical Transport Service. The video below is eery and a tough reminder that nature can quickly undo the best of plans. Thankfully no one was hurt. The driver was not inside the van at the time which slipped 20 feet below the surface.
Waggy’s Towing out of Manassas, Virg. handled the memorable recovery.
UPDATE: spoke to owner of van that was pulled out of sinkhole – it belongs to Prince William Medical Transport Service and was parked and unoccupied when the road opened up. The driver was done with calls for the day @fox5dc pic.twitter.com/kDs9ekjXMa
