The Paintsville Police Department in Kentucky posted an alarming video to their Facebook page Thursday afternoon that showed 100-foot wide embankment failure just outside the town.

The failure swallowed up multiple vehicles and equipment, including an ambulance, but thankfully no one was injured in the frightening scene.

According to the department's post, the 100-foot wide slip is also a massive 400 feet long. Traffic is being redirected out of the area.
