BOSTON (CBS) — Large icicles hanging from the ceiling of the Ted Williams Tunnel alarmed at least one Mass Pike driver over the weekend.

Leo Garcia says in a video he shared with WBZ-TV that he was headed to Logan Airport Sunday morning when he spotted the ice. He was concerned enough to go back through the tunnel later and record video of the icicles as he drove by.

“I decided to make this video to show that this is a very dangerous situation,” he said.

There haven’t been any reports of the ice causing damage or injuries.

WBZ-TV drove by the scene on Monday morning. There were no icicles hanging from the ceiling but there appeared to be some ice debris on the highway.

“MassDOT crews have addressed this location and will continue monitoring for ice accumulation on infrastructure throughout the Commonwealth due to winter weather conditions,” MassDOT said in a statement.
