A man whose car fell into a giant sinkhole during severe flooding in Chicago this spring says he was injured and wants $100,000 from the city.

The hole opened on the 9600 block of South Houston after a torrential rain storm in April.

Three cars were swallowed.

One of them belonged to Mirko Krivokuca.

He claims the city didn't properly maintain the street and has filed a lawsuit seeking damages.

The city says the sinkhole was created when a water main broke.
