A man was crossing the street when he came within inches of getting smashed by a runaway bus.

The bus lost its brakes on Monday while driving toward a busy intersection in Perm, Russia.

The bus struck a stopped car at the intersection and the man leapt out of the way.

Miraculously, he was not hurt.

Four passengers on the bus were injured.
