Default Tunnel of death

The 3,150 m long Lefortovo Tunnel in Russia is the longest 'in-city' tunnel in all of Europe. There is a river running over it and water leaks at some points. The temperature reaches minus 38. See what happens once too often.

Wow did you see the back end of that bus get thrashed around? Man that must have been one heck of a ride if you were in the back.

Ha! I never saw that before. The best is at the end. Those 2 trucks collide and the one dude that stops right in front of the accident is like...

"hell with this, I gott'a go!" Doesn't miss a beat. Immediately hits the turn signal and starts to try and go around!!

IIRC, people lost their lives in some of those crashes.

However, as my friends in the US said, if ever they travel on a coach in Russia, they want that driver when they saw the video some time ago. How he managed to control his vehicle demonstrated his superlative skill.

Water leaks into the tunnel, and it freezes, forming really really bad ICE

I've watched this over and over again, and I just can't figure out where the rightmost of the two trucks comes from. It just seems to appear out of thin air (or the wall)...

It is a joining tunnel that it pops out of, really hard to see in the video..... i had to watch it about 5 times before i figured it out.

I thought it was just bad editing.

One thing worth mentioning is that this footage was taken over one 24 hour period.
