A dog has escaped a near death experience after jumping out of a car in a busy tunnel. 

The dog leaped from an open window of a car travelling 80km/hr in Melbourne’s busy Eastlink Tunnel on Sunday.

Footage from 7 News shows the pooch sliding metres down the centre of the three-lane road.

The dazed animal pushes itself back to its feet when an oncoming silver car swerves to avoid hitting it.

A car in the left lane comes to a sudden halt as the dog stumbles in front of it, still trying to get its bearings.

Cars in the two left lanes come to a standstill as the chaos unfolds, while traffic in the far right lane slows to a crawl.
