Shocking footage caught on bys dashcam in New South Wales

Dashcam footage from a bus in Sydney, Australia has captured the terrifying moment a motorist ran a red light and hit a cyclist, almost struck a pedestrian,  then crashed into another vehicle.

The video, posted on, also shows the shocked reaction to the incident from the bus driver and passengers.Fortunately, neither the cyclist nor the pedestrian was serioulsy injured.

The driver overtook the bus on the left then veered into the lane where the cyclist was waiting at a traffic signal, knocking him off his bike.

A pedestrian jumped out of the way as the motorist continued towards the junction, where they hit a car going through on the green light.

Video of the incident, which happened in the Surrey Hills area of the New South Wales City, has only now been made public.

State Transit’s Steffen Eaurby told 7 News Sydney: “We capture a lot of situations in traffic where things go wrong or are close to going wrong.

“A lot of cyclists use this [video footage] where they capture the situations exactly when it happens.”

The driver of the car was reported to have tested positive for methamphetamine.
