    LOWELL ó Vermont State Police say two cars carrying three family members plunged into a 15-foot-deep hole in a road washout created by heavy rain and a dislodged culvert.

    Police said the members of the Richardson family, of Lowell, suffered minor injuries in the accident early Saturday in Lowell. A 16-year-old in the second vehicle suffered an arm fracture.

    Police said the culvert under Mines Road was washed away sometime late Friday or early Saturday. A nearly 30-foot stretch of road went with it. The washout was north of the Eden town line.

    The drivers didnít see the hole in time.

    The cars were totaled, police said. The local roads commissioner, Reginald Pion, said itís a miracle no one was killed.
