Hot wheels! Russian man casually drives burning bus

Updated: 

Most people would argue that your vehicle being on fire is a good excuse to pull over, stick the hazard lights on and vacate – sharpish. But one man in the Russian city Orel appeared totally unfazed by the fact that the bus he was driving was merrily ablaze.

Video footage captured from another driver's dashcam caught the bus as it drove past, with the driver seemingly unaware that the interior was on fire. However, it turned out that the driver knew of the fire, but was simply choosing to proceed to avoid endangering other motorists by stopping the flaming vehicle in the middle of the road.


No passengers were aboard during the incident, and the driver did eventually stop and call the emergency services. However, the fire was extinguished before they arrived, and nobody was injured during the proceedings.
