CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio -- A Clermont County road crew fixed a sinkhole Tuesday after a Facebook video of the void got tens of thousands of views.

The sinkhole was on the northbound side of Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road, across from St. Veronica Catholic Church.

Chris Gilb's video shows him reaching into the sinkhole, which appeared as just a small hole along the road's edge but was deep and wide underneath the pavement.

""If the opening was big enough, I could climb down inside, and still have room to move around," Gilb wrote.

If anyone out there travels on Mt Carmel tobasco rd., or knows someone else who does, please share this so the county road crew will be forced to fix it before someone gets hurt. I already reported it once.
