VIDEO: Car catches fire in New York tunnel and causes traffic chaos
A car was engulfed in flames while going through the Holland Tunnel Sunday night, causing severe traffic chaos and filling the intersection from New Jersey City to Lower Manhattan with smoke.
The events occurred around 9:00 pm, according to a report from the Port Authority, whose elements had to block all lanes for more than an hour.
A video shows the moment of the fire, while drivers of other cars get out of their vehicles surprised.
Fortunately, no injured people were reported, but nervous people who did not know what was happening at the beginning. There are no details of what may have caused the fire.
The 1.6-mile-long tunnel is an important connection to the Big Apple, especially on the night thousands of people return after the weekend.
