It was last Sunday that Adam Norek drove towards the klara tunnel in central Stockholm. Next to it in the car's front seat he had his eight-year-old daughter.
Adam Norek work nearby and would stop by and download a thing on the job. He responded to the bus in front of him in the queue to the klara tunnel punched in the plastic tube that hangs down from the scaffolding, which controls the height of the vehicles that will be entering in the tunnel.
" I instantly thought that the bus was too high. I have worked for 11 years in the area and have never seen any bus that has been running in there. But I saw pictures from when another bus drove into the tunnel in 2013, says Adam Norek.
in exactly the same place, without, however, the gas tanks exploded.
Adam Norek thought that the bus's sake be forced to back or turn to the right. But there were several cars both around and behind it.
" So I took up my phone and out of curiosity and thought ”what now?”, ”how should he act?”, "he says and adds that he was surprised that the bus drove so quickly.
He understood enough not that the bus was so high, think Adam Norek.
Suddenly illuminated the whole street up by a huge explosion when the bus's gas tank collided with the beam at the Klaratunnelns estuary. The minutes after was very turbulent.
" I knew both the blast and the heat from the explosion through the boxes on the car. My daughter screamed and I tried to calm her while I backed the car. But there was another car behind me who also pulled so it went not so fast, says Adam Norek.
but did not come forward.
" I think that there were many who called maybe. The police arrived very quickly. I was actually impressed, it was there in four-five minutes. They directed the cars so that they turned off towards the Sheraton, " says Adam Norek.
Afterwards gnawed the thoughts of how it had been for the bus driver.
" I thought there and then that he was surely dead. I was very sad and thought that I should have gone back and knocked on his box so that he would not have run into in the tunnel. I could not sleep at all that night, " says Adam Norek.
He felt a great relief when he on Monday snapped on the radio and was told that the driver did not sustained any serious injuries and had to leave the hospital.
" I was really pleased. It was such a big fire, and he could not have had a long time to leave the bus.
