Those potholes could cost you in St. Joseph, MO (and probably everywhere else this Winter)

Dave Williamson swears he’s seen small cars nearly disappear into some of the larger potholes in St. Joseph.

“They drop down a good 6 inches or more,” he said. “I sat and watched those cars just dropping in there. Driving to work, I see a lot of them. They’re everywhere and they’re deep.”

Williamson views potholes with more than a sense of personal pique or detached bemusement. He’s the service manager at Auto Medics in St. Joseph, and some of those vehicles wind up needing repair work after hitting a rocky patch of pavement.
