This crash is bad, but it could've been a whole heck of a lot worse.

A few pedestrians survived unscathed when a bus, presumably in Russia, skidded through a town center, narrowly avoiding them, when it definitely looked like the vehicle would hit them.

You can see the bus first approach and breeze by a pair of people and a dog before speeding right by another man on a bench about a second later. (And, yes, he doesn't seem like he's in any hurry whatsoever to get out of the way. It's like he accepted his fate and is waiting for inevitable.) Those near-victims' lives probably flashed right before their eyes.

The bus stops when it crashed into a parked car and it's unclear if anyone was hurt. Yes, it was a doozy of an accident, but just imagine what it could've looked like.
