Dinah Hufstedler was able to roll down the windows and all three climbed out of the vehicle moments before the sinkhole swallowed it, the Jackson Sun reported.

"I'm just one of those people ... I'm always thinking, what would I do if a situation happened?" Hufstedler told the Sun. "I'm an old woman, and those 'ifs' have never happened, until today."

No one was injured.
