Emergency personnel were responding to a sink hole that opened up Tuesday afternoon in Durham, nearly swallowing a car that drove into the gap.

Witnesses said the vehicle was tipped into the sinkhole and nearly perpendicular to the ground.

The sinkhole is near a Bojangles restaurant at 3558 Hillsboro Road, authorities said. The hole is about 8 feet deep, they said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.
