A car drove into a hole in the ground dug by crews repaving the street at 1111 Chicago Ave. in Evanston Monday morning.

No concrete in the hole this time — unlike the situation earlier this month on Dodge Avenue.

The car’s air bags deployed in the Chicago Avenue incident and it appeared to one knowledgeable witness that the car may be a total loss.
