    A pothole on the 101 ruins at least 20 tires over the weekend.

    A pothole on the 101 Freeway claimed at least 20 victims this weekend.

    The mammoth fissure, located on the southbound Hollywood Freeway near East First Street, was reported Saturday night.

    A SigAlert was issued around midnight, and it took repair crews about five hours to fix the hole, said CHP Officer Patrick Kimball.

    "It's a large pothole which has now caused at least 20 vehicles to get flat tires, so we shut down the highway for repairs," said Kimball.
