MALIBU, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles County authorities say a motorist who managed to get out of his SUV after it nearly went over a cliff was then struck by a passing bus in Malibu.

Sheriff’s officials say the man was conscious and breathing when he was rushed to a hospital following the two crashes Saturday.

Investigators say the man lost control of his SUV, which slammed into a guardrail and hung precariously over the side of the cliff. Officials say the man was disoriented and when he got out of the vehicle he stepped into lanes of traffic and was struck by a tour bus.

KABC-TV reports the crashes are being investigated by the California Highway Patrol.
