Sinkhole Swallows Squad

An unmarked police car was swallowed by a massive sinkhole in Des Plaines Friday.

The squad had just pulled onto the sidewalk at River and Rand roads when the street gave way.

A nearby building and hot dog stand were evacuated as a precaution.

A high-pressure gas line and broken sewer are below the street, which will remain closed until the damage can be assessed.
