Video: Man Dodges Death at Gas Station Pile-up

A very luck escape indeed – a man manages to avoid a crash between a bus and a truck at a Russian petrol station. I think it’s safe to say, the man was very lucky indeed!

Quote from Youtube description: A Russian man has barely managed to escape death in a massive traffic accident involving five vehicles at a gas station. What’s also a miracle is that there were no explosions, and only one person was slightly injured.

A stunning video of the accident in Orenburg, a city in the Russian Urals, has appeared online. A bus with 30 passengers onboard was heading down a busy street, when a Kamaz truck driving in the opposite direction suddenly made a left turn without giving way. In trying to avoid or at least limit the imminent collision with the truck, the bus driver veered right — towards a Lukoil gas station.

The two behemoth vehicles eventually did collide, though a head-on collision was avoided. However, they were then heading straight into the gas pumps, where an unsuspecting man was standing, waiting to fuel his car. The stunned man staggeringly managed to avoid a direct hit from both the truck and the bus, which stopped just inches away from him.
