Monster pothole blows out tires in six cars

Half-a-dozen cars were sidelined after blowing tires on a huge pothole in the middle of King George Boulevard.

Hubcaps lay on the side of the road near a pothole which blew the tires on about six cars

About a half-a-dozen cars were sidelined by a huge pothole in Bridgeview after they blew their tires on the deep pit in the middle of the road.

Surrey Fire Service received a call about 1 a.m. Thursday about a multi-vehicle accident on King George Boulevard at approximately 112 Avenue.

As it turns out, six cars had hit a pothole and blew out their tires.

City crews came out and filled the hole, which was about a metre (three feet) long and 30 centimetres (12 inches) deep.

None of the drivers were injured. Fire crews helped some of them change out their spare tires before sending them on their way.
