Man Hit By Bus Gets Up, Walks to Bar Like It’s NBD

Subscribe to 97X on

If anyone deserves a drink, it’s this guy.

Behold a tough cookie in Britain who got hit by a bus, only to immediately get up and walk to a bar as if nothing happened.

Think about that the next time you freak out about a paper cut.

Simon Smith, 53, was walking along the street minding his own business when an out-of-control double-decker bus — for twice the impact — that looks like something out of Speed came barreling down the road and smashed right into Smith, sending him sliding down the sidewalk. He quickly got up and stepped into the Purple Turtle pub (which, yes, sounds like a bar from a Police Academy movie). Was he just really thirsty or was he just in shock? Who knows?

“I think he [Simon] pretty much got up, brushed himself down and then an ambulance came and took him to be checked,” the bar’s owner, Daniel Fraifeld, said. “He got looked over and didn’t have any lasting injuries — but he’s covered in scrapes and bruises. He then got released from the hospital and I think he just went for a pint to relax.”

Because if there’s one thing you need after getting bowled over by a bus, it’s a nice cold one. Even if you have to drink it through an IV.
