Michigan news crew films pothole blowing out 19 car tyres

Here in the UK, we tend to think our roads are in bad shape. In the American state of Michigan, though, things are even worse, as one news crew found out. In just one rainy night, they filmed a single pothole in Warren, Michigan, shredding the tyres of 19 cars.

Over the short video report, car after car can be seen slamming into the massive abscess. The damage doesn't appear to be limited to low-slung saloon cars, either – even chunky SUVs are taken to pieces by the pothole.
