This story has been widely covered in the news: a bus crashed into vehicles and a tree in San Francisco, resulting in injuries to the driver and several passengers. The crash was captured on a dash cam and has been shared by numerous news sources. We are linking to just one of the news outlets that shared the video.

Usually we think of dash cams as being there to protect us and tell our side of the story in the event that we’re involved in an altercation. The dash cam videos that make the news, though, are often ones that happen to capture an event that we just happened to be there to see.
