Chinese bus driver hit by a pole - video screencap

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.
