A 16-year-old in southwestern Minnesota who drove his car into a sinkhole following heavy rains escaped by climbing out the back window.

WCCO-TV reports that the Renville County Sheriff's Office says the sinkhole formed after a culvert under the road washed out. The teen wasn't injured.

His grandmother, Candace Leopold, says he got his driver's license in June and only had the car for a few weeks when the sinkhole swallowed it Tuesday (July 3). She says he was on his way to work at a farm near Redwood Falls, a community about 185km west of Minneapolis.

Details about any damage to the car were not immediately known.
