Deadly Bus Crash In China Captured On Camera After Driver Reverses Vehicle On Highway (VIDEO)

One person was killed and multiple people were reportedly injured last week after the driver of a tourist bus in China attempted to reverse the vehicle on a highway, triggering a collision with a truck that was barreling down the road.

In this terrifying video, which appears to be a montage of security footage from inside the bus at the time of the accident, the driver and passengers are seen being flung from their seats during the crash.

According to Chinese newspaper Guizhou Metropolitan Daily, the bus had started reversing on the highway after the driver realized that he had missed an exit. As it moved backward along the road, a truck -- which the paper says was moving at a "high speed" -- crashed into the bus' rear, causing the bus to roll over. Australia's NineMSN reports that the bus skidded about 165 feet down the road.

In the security footage, it appears that the bus driver was thrown from his seat and was flung out of the side window in the crash. Guizhou Metropolitan Daily reports that more than 10 passengers were ejected from the bus.

The truck driver reportedly died at the scene and police are said to be investigating the crash.
