Watch a Street Collapse Swallow an Entire Block of Cars in Baltimore

No one was killed or injured

+ READ ARTICLE

There was a harrowing scene in Baltimore Wednesday as a residential street collapsed. Cars slid onto railroad tracks, and several homes in the neighborhood had to be evacuated. There were no fatalities or injuries, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings said that afternoon.

Heavy rains have swept across Maryland this week, and residents told WJZ-13 that they were relieved that children were not walking across the street at the time because the elementary school was closed that day. Jim Zitzer, a retired engineer who lives in the area, told The Baltimore Sun, “My wife and I haven’t been parking on that side of the street for years because we knew it was going to happen.”
