Norwegian tunnel crash kills 5

Norwegian tunnel crash kills 5

Police say two cars crashed in an undersea tunnel in western Norway, killing five people.
Police spokesman Odd Kuloe says one of the cars caught fire after it collided with another in the Eiksund tunnel late Sunday.
He says the victims haven't been identified but are believed to be a 52-year-old man and four people in their mid-20s.
The 50-mile (80-kilometer) Eiksund tunnel connects the island of Hareidlandet with the Norwegian mainland and runs as deep as 940 feet (290 meters) below sea level.
Kuloe says the accident occurred around one mile into the tunnel. The tunnel reopened for traffic Monday morning.
