SHERIDAN, Colo. – A woman was able to escape her vehicle after a massive sinkhole swallowed her car Tuesday in Sheridan, Colorado, just southeast of Denver. 

The Sheridan police chief said a storm pipe was responsible for the sinkhole after heavy rains, according to our partners at 9NEWS. Footage shows the massive sinkhole and inside, just a small portion of the woman's Rav4. 

A sinkhole also swallowed a police car in 2015, according to 9NEWS.
