Dramatic surveillance footage shows the unidentified 10-year SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) veteran attempt to make a U-turn before sliding out of her seat and falling to the floor. Passengers inside the bus were tossed around as the bus jumped a divider and ended up on train tracks – narrowly avoiding a freight train.

The driver was allegedly not wearing her seat belt and was eventually brought to hospital, along with two female passengers, with non-life-threatening injuries, according to a local NBC affiliate.
