This is the shocking moment a yob nearly caused a fatal accident after grabbing the steering wheel of a moving BUS – following a dispute over a ticket.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, got on the number 40 service on Wyken Croft in Coventry, West Mids., at around 9.15am on January 27.

After paying the fare the passenger then accidentally ripped his ticket and asked the 50-year-old driver for a new one.

Despite being told his ticket would still be valid the man lost his temper and grabbed hold of the wheel as the 12 tonne vehicle travelled along at 30mph.

CCTV on board the National Express West Midlands bus shows the driver slamming on his breaks before narrowly missing a parked car as terrified passengers looked on.
