PLANO, Texas — A major pothole on U.S. 75 in Plano damaged several cars and shut down a southbound lane of the highway, police said.
The damaged road happened just north of the President George Bush Turnpike exit, according to Plano police.
Police posted a photo of the damage Tuesday, Aug. 15, which extended the width of the lane. Police had blocked off the damaged lane and then part of another lane, but cars were still getting by on both sides.
The Texas Department of Transportation had crews respond to the scene to fix the pothole.
Police said the pothole “has several cars damaged,” but more information about what happened was not yet available. Video from the scene showed at least one driver working to repair a tire on the side of the road.
Police asked drivers to slow down if they’re driving through the area.
