A driver was lucky to escape with his life on Tuesday morning after becoming crushed between a lorry and an Arriva bus in a crash on Teesside involving nine vehicles.
The pile-up occurred on the A174 eastbound towards Redcar at around 7.10am.
The Ford Focus was left in a very sticky situation between the bus, which had no passengers on board at the time, and a huge HGV.
According to the Daily Mail, fire crews were called to the scene, and managed to free the driver of the Focus, as well as the bus driver, and they were both taken to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesborough.
Both victims have now been released from the hospital.
ITV News reports that the road was closed near to the A19 for most of Tuesday morning, causing severe delays, but has now reopened.
