Man holding breath crashes in Oregon tunnel

Manning, Ore --- A Washington teen who held his breath while driving through an Oregon tunnel, passes out at the wheel hitting a passing SUV head-on.

It happened Sunday afternoon on Highway 26 just west of Manning. Oregon State Police say 19 year old Daniel Calhoon admitted to holding his breath in the tunnel and that he and his passenger, along with a couple from the oncoming car all went to the hospital.

None of the injuries are life-threatening. Calhoon was cited for reckless-driving, reckless endangerment and assault. Troopers advise against playing games while driving.
