JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A huge pothole on Woodrow Wilson in the eastbound lane has been causing headaches for some time. 

Drivers say there are barrels and tape up, but there are no reflectors making the hole difficult to see, especially at night, and there is no way to avoid hitting it. Once you do, you end up on the side of the road.

"I started going slow, did about 15 and my tire just stopped, popped up flat," one driver said. "It must been caught in the hole or something? Yes sir. I've got a cracked rim, tire busted."

"I just got done with a final," said Carl Case. "There was a bunch of water and some red tape and cones and I just hit a pothole and looked down and my tire was busted."

Drivers who had flat tires, bent or cracked rims say the city should fix the pothole immediately and pay for the damage.

We saw at least 10 cars and trucks that hit the hole and had flats.
