THE SHOCKING moment a car pulled out onto a duel carriageway into the path of an oncoming bus was captured on dashcam footage.
A video uploaded by Facebook user Cal Kcrzysik shows the smash between the X43 Burnley to Manchester bus and the blue SUV occur on the A682 close to Clowbridge on Sunday afternoon.
The driver of the blue car can be seen inching out into the road before being hit by the bus, which was travelling down the carriageway at speed.
The fast-thinking driver then swerves to avoid further damage, veering off the road and onto the grass at the side of the road.
Luckily, nobody was badly injured in the incident.
Steve Ottley, General Manager of The Burnley Bus Company, who operates the route, said: “Our concern first and foremost was for our driver and the customers on board the bus when the accident happened. Thankfully our driver, whilst shaken by the incident, was checked over at hospital and was able to go home to get some rest later in the evening.
“We understand that three customers also had to attend hospital with injuries, but they are also now doing fine.
“We are grateful for the quick attendance of the ambulance service to make sure everyone was safe and received quick treatment, as well as the professionalism of our driver.”
