MANNING, OREGON- A teen is accused of causing a three-car crash when he fainted while holding his breath driving through a tunnel north west of Portland, Oregon.

Daniel Calhon told investigators he passed-out while holding his breath and drifted across the centerline and hit another car head-on. A pickup hit those two cars. Four people were hurt.

Some people hold their breath in tunnels as part of a game of out of superstition.

Calhon was cited for reckless driving, reckless endangerment and assault.
