A motorist who managed to escape his SUV after it nearly went over a cliff was then struck by a bus in Malibu Saturday afternoon, Los Angeles County Authorities said.

According to a report from the Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station, the male driver lost control of his vehicle, nearly going over the side on Malibu Canyon Rd. After exiting his car, the driver became disoriented and was struck by a passing tour bus, the report said.

Conscious and breathing, the driver was transported to a local hospital for treatment, according to the report.

“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,” said the report.
