Woman miraculously dodges runaway bus

Updated: 


CCTV has captured the moment a woman walked away after an out-of-control bus destroyed the stop she was standing at.

The shocking footage, filmed in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, starts with the woman waiting at the bus stop beside a busy road.

Suddenly, a bus careers out of control into the bus stop, completely destroying the structure. The startled woman appears to have been looking away from the bus, giving her no time to get out of the way.

She clambers from the wreckage and props herself up on a nearby fence, where she is eventually comforted by passers-by.

Incredibly, with the bus passing inches from her and the bus stop shattering around her, she managed to walk away with nothing worse than a minor head injury.

After destroying the bus stop, the vehicle hit a Lada Kalina and a mini-bus. The Lada's occupants had to be cut free from the wreckage by firefighters, while 10 people in the mini-bus were injured.

Police are investigating the incident.
