A bus driver, distracted by a pen refill, rammed into a car and a truck on a busy highway, causing injuries to three people. The accident took place on a highway in China's Jiangsu when the driver was engrossed in changing a pen refill, People's Daily China reported.

The surveillance camera placed inside the bus shows the driver busy with the refill when he rams his bus into vehicles ahead of him. The white car is pushed out of the lane due to the impact and crashes on the road divider.

In a similar accident in China in July, a taxi's security camera captured the moment two schoolgirls were sent flying into the windscreen after cab driver fell asleep. The violent crash happened in south-western province of Guizhou, the footage of which shows that the driver and passengers were not wearing seat belts.
