Watch The Terrifying Moment An Articulated Bus Split In Two

A 'bendy bus' in Brazil was filming splitting in two last week

Remind me later

Enjoy standing on that weird spinning disc found in the middle of articulated ‘bendy’ buses? Here’s something that might put you off riding on that particular part of the vehicle.

This shocking footage was filmed on an articulated bus last week in Santa Catarina state, Brazil, showing the dramatic moment it split in two. “I realized that the bus had a problem and may be about to deteriorate, so I filmed the journey until the moment that the bus separated,” the person who submitted the video is quoted as saying. Why she didn’t think to shout at the driver to pull the hell over at that point, we’re not sure.

Thankfully, the bus was fairly empty, and it looks like the passengers on board escaped unscathed.
