[The definition of a close call/Facebook/Lost Hills Police Department]
This man got out of one life threatening situation just to crawl into another one.
After losing control of his vehicle, a man nearly went over the side of a Malibu Canyon Road, the Lost Hills Police Department wrote on their Facebook page. The disoriented man managed to then climb out of his SUV, only to be hit by a passing bus.
But luckily for the already unlucky man, he was conscious and breathing when emergency services arrived at the scene. He was then taken to a local hospital for treatment.
As for the people on the bus, Deputy Kevin Moody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said that luckily they don’t believe anyone else was injured, reports the Independent.
To try to avoid a repeated accident, the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station wrote on their Facebook: “This is another reminder of the need to drive safely through the canyons of our beautiful area and to use extreme caution at the scene of a traffic collision.”
