HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) — Heads up to drivers in Homewood! We’re getting reports of a large pothole on Valley Avenue that is causing damage to cars. In the video above, you can see the wet roads combined with that large pothole caused headaches for several drivers overnight. One driver CBS 42 spoke to says he had to get a tow truck to take him back home to Cullman.
Dale Wilson, owner of car damaged by pothole, explained,”My wife was driving, and doing the speed limit, pretty easy, and the car bottomed out, pulled over, the car had two flat tires. We got out and walked back up there and was a large pothole, very large, and we had hit it.”
Now officials have barricaded off the area, but drivers are still encouraged to exercise caution.
