A 30-foot-wide sinkhole has swallowed the front yards of two homes and part of a road in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania.

A helicopter for ABC's Philadelphia station, WPVI, captured video of a white pickup truck dangling at the sinkhole's edge, as well as a tree and pieces of asphalt in the sinkhole.

The dangling pick-up truck had been parked in a driveway, WPVI reported.
