News outlets in China are calling an unidentified bus driver a “driving god” after he managed to turn his huge green bus around on a very narrow two-lane road with steep concrete barriers on each side.
The incident happened on Tuesday during heavy rains in Xingtai, a city of about 7 million in central China.
It’s not clear if there were passengers on the No. 6 bus commandeered by the quick-thinking bus driver. In any case, rising flood waters had made the road ahead treacherous, according to Chinese news reports translated by the Daily Mail.
China has seen severe flooding this summer. Almost 250 people have been killed in the country.
