TOKYO – Like a scene out of a movie….

Japanese police say several burned bodies were found inside a vehicle after a tunnel collapsed 50 miles outside of Tokyo. There’s no official word yet on how it happened, but we do know that it was on the Tokyo-bound lanes of the Chuo Expressway.

Fire officials say a chunk of concrete that was a little less than 200 feet long and eight inches thick fell, burying vehicles in the tunnel. At least two cars remained trapped in the rubble, while crews search for more victims. The light at the end of the tunnel can’t come soon enough.
