We aren't entirely sure what happened here, but we do know this is one of the luckiest bus drivers we've ever seen. This guy's bus struck what looks to be a light pole while he was driving his passengers around in China. The pole came crashing through the windscreen, knocking him out of the driver's seat in the process. While getting batted around by a big steel tube is no great day at work, the driver narrowly avoids getting his head taken off by the fixture. What's more, he manages to pick himself up off the bus floor and bring the vehicle to a stop before anyone else got seriously injured. Atta boy.

Here's hoping this guy got the chance to stop by a hospital for a quick check up on his way home. You can take a look at the scary video below for yourself.

      As was pointed out in an above comment, the pole was brought down by another accident on the opposite lane as shown near the end of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj7gU0jjuEg

      Geeez. Forget about miracles and luck, this man is truly blessed to have avoided death. That was surely a final destination moment right there.

        Yes... because as a Chinese man, he's bound to know kung-fu and have super quick reflexes like you see in every Jackie Chan movie. Racist plz.

      Cant believe the driver is searching for his iphone 5 first thing after the crash.

        And... with adrenaline pumping and a near-death moment in the bus driver\'s face...the exact protocol is what? Jesus! The guy just had the $hit scared out of him, the wind knocked out of him...it\'s fair to let him cool down and collect his thoughts.

        Don't be an idiot, what else are you going to use to alert your superiors and authorities that you just had an accident and you need assistance? There's no way that bus is going anywhere under its own power, they need another bus, and how do we know from the video that shrapnel from the pole taking the bus apart didnt injure someone further back, and that someone might need medical attention? Think with your head. Not your ass.
