Video footage hit social media and news sites this week as a man was captured by CCTV being struck from behind by a bus in Reading.
According to reports the man, Simon Smith, was hit on his way to the pub by the number 17 bus as it careered out of control, smashing into a shop front. Amazingly, Mr Smith just got up and brushed himself off before heading into the Purple Turtle pub.
Following a pint and a trip to the hospital, Mr Smith was apparently suffering from cuts and bruises and was still a bit shocked by everything after his escape without serious harm. Hopefully his next trip to the pub is a little less dramatic.
