The scenario began with an unfortunate accident in the tunnel. Shortly after, a truck noticing traffic too late to react, crashed in the tunnel making another 3 cars crash onto the truck.

The goal of this exercise for all emergency services, was to successfully and correctly solve this chaos whilst taking note of all safety requirements and correct procedures.
