If anybody can justify this photo without breaking up in laughter, then we’d love to hear it. Make no mistake, the bus driver’s intentions are right. The execution, however, is an entirely different matter.

After spotting an accident ahead on the road, the bus driver decides not to become an obstacle in the rescue attempt and promptly turns the bus he was driving around. Unfortunately, in his attempt to not become a roadblock, that’s exactly what he ended up doing after his attempt ended up getting the bus stuck out on the road.

To make things even more frustrating, the ambulance that was racing on its way to the scene couldn’t get past the stuck bus, preventing the ambulance from reaching its destination.

Like we said, the bus driver’s attempt in steering clear from trouble was a good idea. Getting his bus stuck, on the other hand, left a lot to be desired.

David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

This is a perfect roadblock of an action-filled movie. Sadly, it was not a movie. It was just a real event that he blocks the path of an ambulance trying to reach its targeted location. I wondered if the ambulance reached its destination. If yes when? If not how much time it spent on the road?

GMan, cool it. How about we respect the story a bit more less complaining about the writing style not being perfect in your eyes.

something better that the driver could have done was just stop, and let the ambulance pass. i am not blaming any one but that could have been much much easier. the bus is practically longer than the road.

Now that the scene we don’t see everyday, lol how could that possibly happen,the bus was parked parallel to the road, no vehicle could really pass through it.

It’s tragic. I don’t know how it happened and blocked the ambulance.

It seems that accident meets accident. But I guess we can’t blame anyone for what happen.

all these theories are good. maybe there right or wrong. but MARK’s theory is very convincing.

I agree! But IMO this is also an accident maybe the driver hit the break to much that’s why his rear wheels lock and skid on the road.

now its clear he is an idiot.
he was still trying to do the right thing, ad ended up doing the opposite thing he was avoiding.

What an Idiot driver, to be honest this is not funny because there are many lives at stake.

im sure its a man.

i dont know: im just going with the article. that’s a good question, because mostly the drivers that find themselves in that accident are women.

was the driver a woman?

well, his intentions were write, because he could not pull over because on either side, he would wreck or flip the bus over.
there is no picture of the accident, so i would not correct him to skip the accident, because he would be able to do that.
i think he did nothing wrong, it just happened.
i just hope that the accident was not a serious, life threatening, or fatal.
