Summer Heat Causes a Road to Spontaneously Buckle

Like a lot of places, China is suffering through a pretty nasty heatwave right now.  Temperatures are so high in one city that a road spontaneously buckled-up and sent a scooter crashing to the ground.

Two injured when road 'explodes' in heatwave

Two people on a scooter were sent crashing to the ground recently in China when the road surface beneath them appeared to explode. A remarkable security camera video, which was filmed in Baoding City in northern China's Hebei Province on August 11, showed the scooter driver and passenger being sent crashing to the ground as the road beneath them burst open.
