Video: The Tunnel Of Death

There is an email going around about this tunnel in Russia nicknamed ‘The Tunnel of Death.’ The video is actually really interesting to watch if you like car accidents (and what red-blooded American doesn’t?).

The 3,150m long Lefortovo tunnel in Russia is the longest in-city tunnel in the world. It is nicknamed ‘The Tunnel of Death’.

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.

The email alleges that all these accidents happened in the same day.  I’m skeptical of that claim.
