HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WXYZ) — A picture of a car stuck in a huge hole in Hamtramck has gone viral on social media.

Police say the hole is not a pothole; the driver drove through an active construction zone on Goodson near Joseph Campau.

Officials say crews were actually fixing a water main break and the incident could have been much worse.

The driver was ticketed for reckless driving.
