Description

Hit a large pothole that wasn't visible while driving along Doolittle to 98th. The pot hole is located on 98th Avenue, near where Bessie Colman Drive turns into 98th Ave. After hitting the pothole my car slowed and stopped, and it wouldn't start again. Had to get towed, and a nice police officer waited with me because of the dangerous location. Potholes are no joke!
