Another large sinkhole has opened up on a Bay Ridge street.

The 25-foot by 20-foot hole formed at about 5 p.m. Wednesday on 79th Street near Fifth avenue.

Video of the gaping hole shows parked cars teetering on the edge.

Resident Annette Flood told the New York Post that she had just gotten home when five minutes later the street collapsed with her car in it. She says she feels lucky she wasn’t in the hole.

No injuries were reported.
