LOS ANGELES, April 4 (UPI) -- A man almost drove off a cliff on a Malibu road, stumbled away from the teetering car, to then be hit by a passing tour bus on Saturday, authorities said.

The driver lost control of his SUV, slamming it through the guard rail on the windy canyon road. Still disoriented after pulling himself out of the car, he took a few steps out onto the road where he was struck by a tour bus, Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff's Station said in their Facebook post.

"This is another reminder of the need to drive safely through the canyons of our beautiful area and to use extreme caution at the scene of a traffic collision," sheriff's officials said.
