I held my breath once when I drove through a Somali neighborhood. I crashed into a Burka store.
MANNING, Ore.— Oregon State Police say a 19-year-old man caused a three-car crash when he fainted while holding his breath as he drove through a tunnel northwest of Portland.
According to a news release, Daniel J. Calhon, of Snohomish, Washington, told investigators he fainted Sunday afternoon while holding his breath in the Highway 26 tunnel near the community of Manning. His car, a 1990 Toyota Camry, drifted across the centerline and crashed head-on with a Ford Explorer.
Both vehicles struck the tunnel walls before a pickup hit the Camry.
Four people, including Calhon and his passenger, 19-year-old Bradley Meyring, of Edmonds, Washington, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say Calhon has been cited for reckless driving, three counts of reckless endangerment and fourth-degree assault.
Some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.
