I think this guy had the worst commute in history.

Over to the right, click on the video link to see the accident from the perspective of the safety camera in the bus.

I cant believe he walked away with just a few relatively minor injuries.

I cant believe they didnt have to use a sponge to remove him from the wreckage.

The person interviewing him showed him and his wife ( I think) the video, it sure looked like he needed a sponge after viewing it.

Re: You think your commute is bad...

Yeah, she drove by the accident site on her way to the hospital and saw the car, recognizing it as his.

Bet she was expecting to have to identify the body when she got there.

He said he doesnt remember a thing.
