Superstitious Teen Causes Three-Vehicle Accident After Holding Breath in Tunnel
It never ceases to amaze me what foolish things some people will do while driving a vehicle.
A 19-year-old Oregon man caused a three-vehicle accident after he lost consciousness and control of the car as he drove through a tunnel near Portland. The teen’s 1990 Toyota Camry drifted over the centerline and struck a Ford Explorer head-on. Both vehicles struck the walls of the tunnel before a pick-up truck slammed into the Camry. The teen told police he fainted after holding his breath while driving through a tunnel. Although it is unclear why he was holding his breath, state police said some people do it as part of a game or superstition. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured; no lives were lost.
Moving vehicles are not toys; they are not games. Far too often, young drivers choose to take risks and engage in dangerous activities while behind the wheel. When a driver makes such decisions s/he puts countless motorists, passengers, and pedestrians at risk and may be held liable for more than simply breaking the law.

If medical expenses, lost wages, and daily-living expenses create an overwhelming financial burden, plaintiffs may be eligible for lawsuit funding.
