A lamppost suddenly pieced through the windshield of a bus, narrowly missing the driver's head.

The lamppost had toppled during a two-vehicle crash on a highway in China. A surveillance video then caught the post smashing into the front of the bus, knocking the driver to the floor.

The bus driver suffered only a ruptured spleen in the accident. He was able to steer the bus to a roadside before evacuating the 26 passengers.
