Truck in a tunnel

Driving at the lake was amazing. It felt like driving in this old videogame. Except the road in real time is much more crowded. So, in the second tunnel we were (surprise, surprise!) in a traffic jam. We had no choice than to wait. I seemed that the thing that caused it, was not far away from us. We were lucky, some Italian dude managed to lead some cars forwards, including ours. We passed one bus, which was standing there and it seems this one blocked everything. But some metres deeper in the tunnel, another bus stood there, in the same direction. They were waiting for something. And that something was going to be visible after some more metres. Some huge (typical American) monster truck was stuck in the opposite direction, leaving us centimetres to pass. We could do it nearly, so no chance the busses could follow us. It was a miracle this thing could even get that far!

Realising this, we saw with astonishment the queu that was forming behind this truck. It was already miles long. The other way round, would be the same. It was crazy, just a few cars that could pass all those vehicles. I wondered how they solved this special situation, because it was almost impossible to get or the busses or the truck out of the tunnel. Anyway, it was not our problem anymore, so the trip continued.
