This must be the luckiest pedestrian ever -- watch him sprint to safety just inches ahead of the bus that suddenly swerved onto his side of the road. Driving against the flow of the road, the out-of-control bus eventually smashed into a black car, which got sandwiched between it and another bus.

"There were no other cars behind mine and the bus could have flattened quite a few cars including mine if the driver had lost control of his vehicle at that stage.
"I hope all the injured parties (the driver of the bus, the passengers in the other bus, and the passenger in the black car that got sandwiched in between the two behemoths were not too badly hurt and wish them a speedy recovery.
"To the pedestrian who escaped being mowed by the bus - I am glad you managed to outrun the bus.
"Thank goodness you are someone fit and able to react fast after hearing and seeing the bus.
"I don't know if I could react the way you did myself :)
"I am still wondering why the bus ended up in the right lane from where it came from."
