Morning disaster: tire eating pothole and water main breaks in metro Detroit

DETROIT - A huge pothole on southbound I-75 in Detroit Tuesday made for some difficult driving.

The massive hole was discovered on the right lane of the highway, just after the Dearborn Street bridge.

The Wayne County Road Commission called in crews before dawn to try to patch the hole.

In addition, a water main break on Baltimore between Woodward and Cass in Detroit slowed traffic Tuesday morning.
