A driver has escaped unharmed after the front of her car was swallowed by a sinkhole in Perth.

About 8.15pm on Thursday, a burst water main caused part of Bridgeman Drive, just off Beechboro Road in Bennett Springs, to suddenly cave… and in went the white Honda hatchback.

Bystanders helped pull the woman to safety.
