A bus driver in the city of Patras, West Greece, lost control of his vehicle, leading to several crashes on Saturday night, but fortunately, no injuries were reported.

For unknown reasons, but most likely due to a malfunction of its brake system, the bus suddenly started moving downhill along Agiou Nikolaou (Saint Nicholas’) Street.

As a result, the massive vehicle hit five cars, causing severe damage to all of them.

The bus only ended its dangerous journey after hitting the pole for a traffic camera, at the intersection of Corinth Street.

The pole then fell down, hitting three parked motorbikes.

Local police authorities rushed to the scene of the accident and are investigating the reasons behind this unfortunate incident, in which no one was injured.
