Heavy rainfalls in Massachusetts and Rhode Island have recently caused significant damage to properties and roads, with some communities even declaring a state of emergency to address the situation. One consequence of the resulting floods was a crater that opened up underneath several Cadillac crossovers at a dealership in Leominster, Massachusetts.
According to a report from CBS – and captured in photos shared online by Wachusett Paving – a recent onslaught of heavy rain resulted in a flood that caused massive damage to the Massachusetts city. One of the unfortunate victims of this destruction was the local Durand Cadillac dealership.
So much rain poured from the heavens that the earth below several Caddy crossovers gave way, and devoured them. It wasn’t until the following morning that crews were able to get out on the roads and rescue the Cadillac vehicles from their premature graves.
In fact, the flood waters were so high and destructive, that a few folks online claimed that they had never seen anything like this, and that the rain had destroyed several homes and businesses.
Unfortunately, the dealership owner claims that he does not hold any flood insurance on the vehicles, each of which was valued in the $65,000 ballpark. As such, he hopes that the crossovers sustained minor damage and will be eligible to be sold after fixing any issues.
“Trying to get those cars out of there without any more damage,” Dealership Owner Rick Durand stated. “Hopefully they didn’t get wet inside.”
It’s worth noting that Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella stated that the flood waters were so rough, that quite a few vehicles around the city were washed off the roads and into the surrounding areas, including the three aforementioned Cadillac crossovers. In fact, the mayor claimed that hundreds of vehicles in the area had to be towed throughout the night.
