    OR-Driver holds breath in tunnel, faints and crashes, injuring 4

    An Oregon teen playing 'hold your breath in the tunnel', passes out and caused a two vehicle crash that injured four people.

    Daniel Calhoon's passenger was the most seriously injured but is now stable.

    A former diver was in the vehicle he hit, and was amazed that the teen passed out after only ten seconds. He says he found he can still hold hold his breath for a full minute. He had the sense to practise in his armchair at home though, not his vehicle.

    Calhoon's received several citations, most of them beginning with 'reckless'.
