TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A woman had to be rescued after a sinkhole swallowed up her car on Detroit Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 60-year-old Pamela Knox was driving southbound on Detroit Avenue around 12:15 p.m. Wednesday when her vehicle fell into a large sinkhole. Toledo Fire crews helped Knox out of the hole before transporting her to an area hospital.

The intersections of Monroe and Detroit, Bancroft and Detroit, Detroit and Horace, Bancroft and Forrest and Bancroft and Sylvania are all closed.  Police say the intersections will remain closed for "an extended period of time."

Fire crews at the scene said the hole is more than 10 feet deep and could grow.  Crews had to use a crane to pull Knox's 2010 Chevrolet Malibu from the sinkhole.

"It could have happened to anybody. I could have been driving right there and been sucked right down in that hole. I just hope the lady that fell in there – I hope that she's ok," said Toledo resident Veronica Coleman.
