Elk Creek Tunnel
Posted July 28, 2017, by Richard Sparkman (naildryver [at] yahoo [dot] com)

It is known as other names. I'm just curious to know if there has been a log or data on vehicle accidents in or entering or exiting this. I travel through there often and its very narrow. I have been lucky to get through it 50+ times of maybe 2 without incident. I recently witnessed a fatality. I'm a careful driver but I have my concern. ~Rich
