The 40-year-old taxi driver was hospitalized. But he seems to be out of danger now.
But a lot of commotion has been going around the accident. It seems to be unclear why the Audi accelerated and speed through 30 mph at a tunnel. Some people even speculate whether the 20-year-old boy with Paige was actually her boyfriend. This is because, before this incident, there seemed to be no relevant photos or talk about him. And the fact that his name has been not yet revealed strengthens the suspicions.
