Watch: Truck crashes into bus in New York, and other near-misses

Talk about lucky!

Last month in Syracuse, New York, a pickup truck crashed into a city bus, becoming lodged inside the cabin. Surveillance cameras inside the bus caught the hard-to-believe accident, in which two people were hospitalized, but no one was seriously injured. The video captures the astonishing crash from multiple angles, along with the stunned reactions of passengers inside the bus.

Think about that the next time you're complaining about your morning commute. It could always be worse!

Like that icy commute last month when semi-trucks collided on Interstate 84 near Troutdale.

Or that 30-car crash earlier this month on Interstate 5 near Capitol Highway, where - miraculously - no one was seriously injured.

Of course, when it's icy, crashes are going to happen. But even under the best conditions, bad driving and being in the wrong place at the wrong time can cause accidents. Thanks to dashboard cameras, there's no shortage of videos of commutes gone wrong. View them as a cautionary tale.
