Yesterday afternoon in the city of Quanzhou, Fujian Province, a perfectly round ditch opened up in the middle of a busy intersection, swallowing whole an entire sedan.

Luckily the occupants of the vehicle escaped before their car was devoured by the sinkhole, leaving us with these terrifying photos.

Sinkholes are a persistent problem in China, but this is the best (i.e. worst) we've seen in a while.
