CCTV Shows Pedestrian's Lucky Escape

A man had a miraculous escape yesterday after an ambulance smashed into a bus stop – and sent him flying through a giant pane of glass.

Shop workers found the victim lying in the debris moments after the crash, which happened as the vehicle responded to a 999 call.

The man, who appeared to be in his 60s, and the paramedic driving the ambulance walked away from the scene of devastation with just cuts and bruises.

CCTV video footage from inside a butcher’s shop next to the bus shelter shows the impact at 10.20am.
