Some time ago, a resurface of major interstate occured nearby. Within a couple days, there were so many wrecks, they had to close it down due to some
inadvertant substance slickening the road.
It seems logical that if in fact these tunnel incidents were frequent and the surface was the culprit, there would have been a resurfacing, menacing
warning type signage, or other action taken to eliminate the roadway as cause.
If it is speed related, why would a bus be taking such a chance?
Also, regarding the scene with two trucks seemingly occupying the same space in the right lane was cause for me to review that portion multiple times.
If Chris Angel popped out of the wreckage and levitated across the lanes, it would have at least gave me reason to believe it was a majik deception,
but I am not convinced that it was an optical illusion caused by camera angle, speed, vehicle dimensions, etc...
Also, the car that slams the left curb and rolls didn't really seem to be going fast enough to cause such an event. Most vehicle have a low center
of gravity and takes quit a bit of enertia to roll at least more than onto it's side.
I guess if the reverse pan was a blind sharp curve that relaxes into a sweeping gradual curve, that could cause overreaction of some drivers. Maybe
they don't have to test or are too high on vodka.
