PITTSBURGH (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A simple trip to the tanning salon ended with quite the scare for one Pittsburgh woman.

Police say a 60-inch storm water pipe collapsed. By the end of the day, most of the road caved in.

When Natalie Huddleston felt her car rocking, she called into the tanning salon, and the owner rushed to help.

"I ran outside, pulled her out of the car window and within 5 minutes the car was gone," said Lisa Masley, Owner of Hollywood Tan.

A tow driver was able to pull a few cars safely out of the way.

Huddleston says she just feels lucky to have gotten out safely.
