Welp, you can add "puddles" to the long list of lethal Australian hazards, as this provisional pickup driver learned when a murky little pool of water damn near swallowed his truck.
Apparently a driver and passenger were actually trying to circumnavigate a bigger puddle at the Altona Williamstown river connection while it was flooded, but ended up plunging into a sinkhole. Recovery crews had to wait for flooding to subside before pulling the Toyota pickup out.
Both of the truck's occupants escaped with "minor injuries."
I have to say, I'll think twice about blindly splashing through puddles after seeing this. Turn your speakers down though, it sounds like this was video was taken on the windiest day ever.
