WCCO-TV reports that the Renville County Sheriff's Office says the sinkhole formed after a culvert under the road washed out. The teen wasn't injured.

His grandmother, Candace Leopold, says he got his driver's license last month and only had the car for a few weeks when the sinkhole swallowed it Tuesday. She says he was on his way to work at a farm near Redwood Falls, a community about 115 miles west of Minneapolis.

Details about damage to the car were not immediately known.
