Guy Reveals Reason He Went To Pub After Being Hit By Bus

Yesterday, incredible footage showed a man get completely collected by a bus as he was walking down the street.

The damage was incredible, debris was flying and everyone rightfully assumed he was dead.

However, moments later, he got up and walked into the pub he was headed for… so what’s WITH that?!

Simon recalled the accident for The Sun:

I came down the street, it was early morning, I'd gone to pay in a wage cheque at my bank. I make that journey every Saturday. I didn't think anything of it. But then I heard some banging behind me and I was hit from behind. Then you can see what happened from the CCTV. The video says it all.

I didn't tense because I didn't know it was coming. After it I just wanted to get somewhere safe. It's quite funny everybody thinks I have gone for a pint. I was actually looking for a place of refuge when I went into the doorway of the pub. I hadn’t lost consciousness so I knew what had happened. But the police and paramedics didn’t believe me.

Originally they were all in agreement because if I had been hit by the bus, I wouldn’t be here. I said 'I'm sure the bus hit me' and they kept saying 'No you were hit by debris'.

An officer then saw the CCTV at the pub and came back and said 'I'm really sorry you were right'.

The bus company have also spoken out, with Reading Buses saying: "The incident is the subject of an ongoing internal investigation as well as an investigation by the police with whom we are working and sharing footage from our on-board CCTV."
