Runaway bus engulfed in flames


Footage has emerged from China of a dramatic incident involving a runaway bus that caught fire on the weekend.

An amateur cameraman captured the moment the bus rolled down a highway out of control, in Fo Shan City, Guangdong province.

The driver had evacuated the bus's passengers after a fire was spotted in the back of the vehicle.

It is thought the fire then burnt through the brakes, causing the empty bus to take off down the road in flames.
