Russian Tunnel of Death

Someone sent me this in an email, so I thought I’d share the love.  There are some serious OMG moments in there…

READ BEFORE WATCHING THE VIDEO

The 3,150m long Lefortovo tunnel in Russia is the longest in-city tunnel in the world. It is nicknamed ‘The Tunnel of Death’.  See for yourself why.  There is a river running over the tunnel, and water leaks through in some areas.  When the temperature reaches nearly 0°C (like it does during the winter in Russia ), the road freezes and becomes as slippery as can be.  The result is the below videos which were taken during a single day with  the tunnel surveillance camera.
