Pothole Repair Crew Gets Truck Stuck In A Pothole (PHOTO)

Ever feel like there's a hole in your life you just can't fill?

Perhaps it's time to give the public works department in East Lansing, Mich., a call. Judging by this photo, they'll stop at nothing to patch even the deepest abyss -- even when that means filling it with their own pothole-filling truck.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the above scene resulted after a public works employee backed into a previously unknown sinkhole that had been concealed by a pothole.

NPR deemed the photo an "oddly appropriate" nod to winter, referring to what has been an unusually difficult season for cities from Chicago to Atlanta.

"Well, the pothole is full now, isn't it?" one Redditor joked.

Keep on truckin', guys.
