Bus passengers barely have time to escape before train crash

Passengers on a Georgia bus escaped a huge crash last week with a train after their bus became stranded on a set of train tracks.

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's closed circuit cameras captured last Wednesday's scary crash. In the video, you can hear desperate passengers banging on the doors and begging the driver to let them out. Seconds after the last passenger has jumped off the bus the train collides, sending the bus driver tumbling from his seat.

Five passengers suffered minor injuries in the crash, KTLA reported. One elderly man spent the weekend in the hospital with serious head and neck injuries.

The driver was given a drug and alcohol test after the crash. Passengers say the bus became stuck after a car stopped in front of it. Police are looking for the driver of that vehicle, according to the Independent.
