Both vehicles burst into flames and the driver of the bus, which was not carrying passengers, was barely able to jump out of the passenger door amid the ball of fire, which also ignited grass and sugar cane on the road verge.
The bus driver escaped with minor injuries.

Both vehicles were totally burnt out.
