In Russia, even a solid looking road surface sometimes becomes a trap for cars. Because the asphalt layer can hide a leaky water pipe. In Novosibirsk, two cars sank into the ground in the middle of a parking lot because of a defective heating pipe.
A disaster in the Russian city of Novosibirsk caused a stir on social networks. Warm water, which leaked through a leak in a heating pipe, washed away a street. This created a pit into which two wagons fell. The cars were parked on the side of the road at the time of the accident, so their owners were not injured. Eyewitnesses published photos and videos of the accident.
Not only the car owners were affected by the leak in the heating pipe. Three hospitals and 21 residential buildings had to be disconnected from the grid until further notice. According to media reports, the operating company is insured and promised to compensate the car owners. The consequences of the accident should therefore be resolved by Thursday morning. On Monday, the temperatures in the Siberian city had dropped to three degrees Celsius.
