A burning crater was found near the Mexican highway. The civil defense and the police arrived at the place, trying to determine its origin.
The crater was spotted by drivers traveling on a highway from Torreón to Saltillo. Some curious gawkers watched the hole and took pictures. The crater is quite deep, it emits smoke and flames can be seen inside.
It is believed that this can be an impact crater. However, civil defense and police are still investigating. No fragment of a meteorite has yet been found and no government agency has issued a comment on this matter.
