A man driving along the scenic route of Malibu Canyon Road in Los Angeles, California lost control of his vehicle – and the SUV nearly plunged down the deep canyon! It was a good thing he was able to stop the car from moving over the edge of the road. He calmly climbed out of the vehicle to safety.
But while walking down the road to ask for help, the dazed man was hit by a tour bus whose driver did not notice him until it was too late. Thankfully, he also survived the second accident and was conscious when medics arrived.
The California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles County Fire Department treated him right on the scene before he was quickly rushed to the nearest hospital in Los Angeles.
The sheriff’s office issued this statement:
The male adult driver lost control of his vehicle, nearly going over the side. The driver became disoriented and exited the vehicle and was struck by a passing tour bus.
This is another reminder of the need to drive safely through the canyons of our beautiful area and to use extreme caution at the scene of a traffic collision.
