    Japan, cars trapped in tunnel collapse

    "A police spokesman, Yoshihiro Fukutani, said police were still trying to learn the exact situation inside the Sasago Tunnel, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) outside the city, after parts of a wall inside collapsed early Sunday morning."

    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    Sadly, at least 9 people didn't make it out OK.

    There's a tunnel I have to go thru occasionally in Vancouver that runs under the Fraser River and I HATE it - thinking of all the tons of water that are above while driving thru it.
