February 26, 2016 - ARIZONA, UNITED STATES - The man whose pickup truck was nearly swallowed by a sinkhole said he feels lucky to be alive.

A section of Greenfield Road collapsed around 10:30 p.m. Monday, forcing the closure of Greenfield between Germann and Queen Creek roads in Gilbert.

The front end of a pickup truck went into the massive sinkhole. The driver of that pickup, Christian Wolf, said he didn't see a sinkhole before the crash.

"It went in in slow motion as if I was falling down into it," Wolf explained. "I closed my eyes at first. I didn't know what else to do."

Wolf said he had to kick open the driver's side door so he could jump out.

He was shocked to see his truck was beginning to sink even further into the hole. His truck, he said, was totaled.

Wolf said he was traveling around 45 mph when he went into the hole.

"I hit so hard going that fast that the whole back end whipped around," he said.

Amazingly, Wolf had only a few nasty bruises. He said he's thankful he walked away with his life.

The city of Gilbert did put out a statement saying that South Greenfield Road will be closed while crews figure out what happened and make repairs. - AZ Family.
