WHEN he saw a teenager riding past him on a bicycle with earphones in both ears, bus driver Lin Ther Huat thought it was dangerous.
Then, as Mr Lin approached a pedestrian crossing with the traffic lights on green, the young cyclist swerved straight into the outer lane.
A black Toyota travelling on that lane hit the boy, said Mr Lin. The impact sent the teen flying in the air. He landed on the road at least 3m ahead. He was unconscious for almost 15 minutes and his bike was wrecked.
An in-car camera installed in Mr Lin's bus captured the accident. The teen was taken to hospital with injuries.
