A dashcam footage, lasting 31 seconds, capturing the incident’s aftermath was shared on TikTok by a user named ryesman. It depicted a section of the CTE tunnel sealed off and occupied by a recovery truck and police cruisers.

The police said that a 35-year-old male car driver is assisting with investigations.
