An optical illusion frightened drivers into thinking a giant hole had appeared in the middle of a road in the United States.

Video of the strange sight was shot by an unsuspecting driver after he encountered it while driving through a tunnel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The viral video has attracted millions of views and the person doing the commentary expresses surprise there are no signs blocking off the “pit”.

But it turns out the “hole” was actually a giant puddle, much to the amusement of the person recording the scene and viewers worldwide.
