A Birmingham minibus driver managed to crash into two vehicles in a mere five seconds.

Dashcam footage captured the driver of the West Midlands Special Needs Transport minibus failing to hear the horns of passing Erdington motorists before pulling out of a T-junction and hitting a Nissan Micra.
The hapless driver then reverses, crashing into a van that was behind him.

The van's driver Paul Lewis, 42, told The Sun: "He just slammed it into reverse and didn't look at all.

"Clearly he was in a bit of a state from the other crash a few seconds earlier.

"I couldn't go anywhere so he just rolled straight into me. I was thinking: 'Oh my god, what are you doing?'

"It was like watching a comedy sketch the way it happened twice in quick succession."

Andy Tonks, the 54-year-old IT worker who owns the dashcam, added: "It was all rather amusing really.

"I was on my way to work and it all unfolded right in front of me.

"I pulled over to tell the Nissan driver that I had it all on camera.

"Normally you'd think that after one accident the driver would be even more careful, but that wasn't the case here.

"You could hear the beeping of horns to try to avoid another collision but it was no use.

"The main thing is no-one was hurt. It was slightly ironic that a bus designed to help people was involved though."

Accessible Transport Group, which runs the Ring and Ride service, did not comment on the incident, which occurred in June but has only just surfaced on video.
