A 49-year-old-man has had an unbelievable escape after being hit by a bus in Berkshire. The bus crashed into a storefront, sending debris flying through the air. The impact broke the bus' windshield.

The Guardian revealed the CCTV footage that shows Simon walking across Gun Street in Reading.

The bus driver was detained.

Britain is a country well-equipped for such "keep calm and carry on" incidents to go viral. After the London Bridge terror attack last month, a photo went viral of a man fleeing the scene with a pint in hand, trying carefully not to drop anything. "The British worship beer more than life". Long-running Channel 5 show Caught on Camera is just one in a whole genre of shows dedicated to sharing CCTV footage wider.

The Purple Turtle's management tweeted the pub was not struck or otherwise damaged by the bus that hit Smith. Smith was later released.

It remains unclear what caused the bus to crash but police said no arrests have been made.

Mr Smith later told BBC South he was "lucky to be alive". All was not entirely well, however.

The incident which was caught on closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage, left the bus with a shattered windscreen. It sent its regrets to the man and best wishes for a quick recovery.

Smith suffered numerous cuts and bruises, but miraculously avoided any major injuries.

Data Points on Fallout From CNN's Russia 'Fake News' Retraction
In response to the news, Mr Trump tweeted , "Wow CNN had to retract big story on " Russia " with 3 employees forced to resign". From now on, it will be hard for the fake news media to credibly pin other similar "scandals" on Trump and his administration.

Reading Buses has said it has launched an internal investigation.

Seeming to shake off the crash, he then walked to the nearby Purple Turtle bar, the Guardian said. He was a longtime customer before he began working as a bartender, "a real loyal member of staff".

Although he was able to get up immediately after being hit, Smith didn't escape the accident totally unscathed.

We were called to a road traffic collision involving a bus and a pedestrian in Gun Street at 9.13am on Saturday.

"It's absolutely shocking", Fraifeld told the BBC.

According to local media reports, he walked away with only minor injuries after being taken to hospital for assessment.

"I hadn't lost consciousness so I knew what had happened", Smith said. "Tough as old boots", said another.

RT contacted the Purple Turtle Bar, who uploaded the footage to their YouTube account on Tuesday before taking it down.
