YOW.

Wear your seatbelt! That driver would probably be alive today if he had.
 
2013-08-06 08:01:26 PM
Damn! That was intense.

I just watched a man die. That is very sad.

vygramul: YOW.

Nope. Anti seat belt people tell me that he was actually thrown to safety... most likely under the rolling bus.

Goddamn idiot for doing that though. Just go to the next exit.

Having been on the roads in China, doesn't surprise me one damn bit.
 
2013-08-06 10:35:36 PM
Couple of things.

1. Move off to the side of the road. Don't back up in the driving lanes.

2. Wear your seatbelt.

3. If you missed your exit, just let it go because it's gone, man.

I have a mirror over my bed that says'objects are larger than they appear'
 
2013-08-06 10:37:06 PM
Not all mirrors have that warning. You can get stickers to replace it.

The bus driver didn't die.  The driver of the truck that smashed into the back of the bus is dead.
 
2013-08-06 10:39:34 PM
Jesus Christ, reversing on a highway is retarded and so is realizing your exit is a few hundred feet away and swerving through 3-4 lanes to get to the exit lane. Sadly, I see this way too often. Just let it go, you messed up and missed the exit, just take the next one and double back. That few minutes you save isn't worth putting other peoples' lives in jeopardy because you have poor driving and navigation skills.
 
2013-08-06 10:40:04 PM
HOLY SHIAT!

Still. "Oops, I missed the exit. I better BACK UP ON THE HIGHWAY IN TRAFFIC???"

"The truck driver reportedly died at the scene ", the bus driver appears to have been whisked away to safety by Superman.

Oh, so they don't just do this when they are on vacation??

Authorities are conducting an investigation?  Have they not seen the video of the bus driver reversing on the highway and using passengers as lookouts?  Cause my verdict is in, if they are interested.
 
2013-08-06 10:43:28 PM
It's a classic example of not thinking things out. Missed the exit? There's gonna be another, and you'll be able to circle back around.

 It's not unique to China, I've seen a guy come to a stop to make the exit two lanes over on I-35E in Dallas, trying to make the Medical District exit. Should have just gotten off at the next exit and circled back. Even if you're in the middle of the woods there'll be an exit, if you aren't familiar with the network ofback roads that exist.

The gauntlet I run in Singapore every day is insane. Bus drivers here are not the least bit intimidated by my little Toyota Vios.
If there is a gap big enough for a bike, they stick their bus in it.
 
2013-08-06 10:52:07 PM
I remember pretty much crapping my pants when I was on a bus where the driver decided to reverse on the shoulder back to our exit.

In front of the Pentagon.


/probably still crapping to this day because of it
//or it's just the chili from lunch
 
2013-08-06 10:53:45 PM

He probably did live.  The article said that the truck driver was dead.
 
2013-08-06 10:53:52 PM
An accident tape or a Fung Wah bus driver training video?
 
2013-08-06 10:56:41 PM
Wow...I'm surprised the driver of the bus lived...he was ejected from the vehicle...really horrible to watch the passengers.
 
2013-08-06 10:58:33 PM
Even the guys in the very back who are looking out the rear window only react a fraction of a second before the impact. What's the deal, did the truck come out of no where?

slayer199: Wow...I'm surprised the driver of the bus lived...he was ejected from the vehicle...really horrible to watch the passengers.


Uh, at least a few others went out the window behind him at the same time... It looks like maybe three people, including the woman with a yellow jacket seen in the second "replay," are wearing seatbelts on the bus.

Rode buses all through the mountains of western China. There were some scary hairy stretches of road shared with trucks whose drivers had a sort of Confucian death wish thing they were dealing with, but all the bus drivers I rode with were a whole lot smarter than this one.

The scenery can be bizarrely wonderful too (flickr video shot out the window- shaky because Chinese Road).

Reminds me of the snippets of snark you hear in GTA as you speed around and crash... like 'How they let you drive if you blind?" or "I'm glad this is not my car!"

Having had a cdl and having driven a bus for years, you never...ever...back up on the highway. unless zombies are running to the front of your bus, just keep going...what a farking tool. Nice job killing people.

UsikFark: Even the guys in the very back who are looking out the rear window only react a fraction of a second before the impact. What's the deal, did the truck come out of no where?



They probably thought the guy was going to change lanes or stop. At what point do you think "oh crap he's not braking" and then react? I dunno... I mean most people don't expect the worst.

Since the bus didn't have a rear view cam we'll never be able to see for ourselves what the truck did.
 
2013-08-06 11:17:59 PM
Yeah, another thread with retards screaming and foaming about wearing seatbelts that can nicely rip into the tender belly and get at that organ meat.

/Many laws state that Seatbelts are not required when moving in reverse.
//Know you know, cause knowledge is power and idiots(like the bus driver) kill many people on the roads no matter how much f*cking safety devices you put in vehicles.

Since he is a tour bus driver, I hope he would know the roads.  I, however, applied this logic in unfamiliar Cary, NC and got so unimaginably lost.  I kept exiting on series of highways, not crossovers.  I ran on a quick errand for my wife and left my phone.  It took me 90 minutes for what I thought was a 5 minute juant.

Hmm, when did fark resort to posting snuff videos for page clicks...pretty pathetic.  Do we need to ban the Admin that greenlit this crap?


It does need to be said that repeated and extreme violations of Fark's posting rules will result in a permanent posting ban. We don't want to ban users from participating on the site - but it can and will happen if we have to. A site ban is 100% avoidable by following some simple rules. Remember that these rules are non-negotiable and Farkback will not embark on a protracted debate over so-called grey areas. These rules apply to link submissions AND user profiles as well. To that end, here they are:

Don't repost deleted content/links.
Don't post NSFW (Not Safe For Work) images or unlabeled NSFW links.

Don't post graphic images or links to graphic content.

So doesn't this violate rule # 3 of the FaRQ?  or does HuffPo get a pass since they get on fark so often?

I spent 10 days in China last year--Shenzen, Guizhou, and Beijing.  Sorry, the stereotype of "Asian Driver" is so goddamned true.  I had never feared for my life so much than when I was driving or walking on or near a road in China.  Even the bicyclists are bad.
 
2013-08-06 11:25:40 PM
I'm assuming when they say highway they're referring to the same kinds of highways we have in the US? If so, what the hell was he expecting? No way would traffic expect him to be stopped or in reverse, of course he's going to get hit.

Wrong, you should never try to back up period. especially if you are driving a bus.

accept that you missed your turn and proceed to next exit. 5 or 10 extra minutes and you can be where you wanted.

I'm astounded that a bus in China had video cameras and telemetry (notice the speed indicator) that might actually reveal malfeasance on the part of the bus driver.

Other than that whole bus driver getting flung to his death part, and the people getting their asses beat by the impact...that's not graphic at all....
