Car flies into air, smashes bus in horrifying crash in Japan

An onboard camera has captured the terrifying moment a speeding car flies across a motorway in Japan, before ploughing into a tourist bus.

The car was initially on the other side of the Tomei Expressway in Shinshiro when it smashed through the centre barrier and flew into the air.

Footage from the bus shows it being struck, before rolling and coming to rest in a ditch.

The 62-year-old driver of the car died at the scene, while most of the 45 passengers on the bus received only minor injuries, according to The Japan News.
