A bus driver managed to stop his vehicle despite being struck by a huge lamppost smashing through the windscreen. CCTV footage appears to show Mao Zhihao chatting to someone before spotting the danger ahead, but he has little time to react before the giant blue pole pierces the glass. The pole swiped him to the left of his body. He suffered a ruptured spleen in the accident. Mao was pinned down but managed to steer the vehicle to a halt. He then helped the 26 passengers to safety.
"I couldn't see the road, and tried to drive it to one side of the road. The bus hit the guardrails and finally stopped."
The lamppost toppled after a separate two-car crash in Jiangshan, in China's eastern province of Zheijang.
