Yes indeed.. that's why digging a big hole next to the driveway so you
can see what size crater you are excavating/washing out under the
driveway is important.
What about some sort of horizontal boring scheme. A big hammer drill
and something that looks like a spade bit or auger for wood, and some
extensions. I can't say I've ever seen this, but at least you might be
able to control the size of the hole, and it's a "do it yourself" scale
