Last Friday, the driver of an empty Dallas Area Rapid Transit paratransit bus crashed into the back of a line of traffic, crushing one car, damaging four more, and sending two drivers to the hospital. They are lucky to be alive.

The crash occurred when the bus driver failed to slow for traffic, explained DART police.

The two injured drivers were hospitalized for neck and shoulder injuries. When you look at the shocking pictures of the first crumpled car, which used to be a Nissan Sentra and is now a mass of torn sheetmetal, it is almost unbelievable how the driver survived.
