A bus driver in China is lucky to be alive after a huge pole from a streetlight crashed through his windshield and almost impaled him.

There's video of it online, and it looks like the pole might have actually hit him in the HEAD.  But there's no blood or anything, and he was able to get out from under it and bring the bus to a stop.

According to police, the pole fell after two cars crashed into it.

It happens at :04, there's a slow-motion replay at :47, and it shows it from another angle at :55.

There's also this crazy video out of China right that shows a guy get swallowed by a huge 50-foot sinkhole near Hong Kong.  Sadly, he didn't survive.
