.Tunnel of Death

Amazing !

The 3,150 meter long Lefortovo tunnel, in Russia is the longest in-city tunnel in all of Europe . It is nicknamed The Tunnel of Death. See for yourself why.

There is a river running over the tunnel and water leaks at some points.

When the temperature reaches nearly 0°C like it does in winter in Russia, the road freezes and becomes as slippery as well...ice. !!

The result is the attached video which was taken during a single day with the tunnel surveillance camera.

Congratulations to the dual-carriage bus driver.....imagine the passengers in the back.... what a ride!

Mental, most of the drivers were just flying along anyway!

Well to be fair, it only showed the crashes, not the aftermath.
