A driver stopped his coach safely after flying pieces of metal pierced his windscreen and slammed into his head on an expressway on July 9, China Central Television reported.

The incident happened when Wang Fei was driving his coach along Jingyi Expressway in Hubei Province around 9am.

Two pieces of iron flying at high speed broke through the front windscreen of the coach and hit his head. The coach appears to have jolted heavily due to the impact.

At the critical moment, Wang endured the pain of his injury and stopped the vehicle safely before leaning on the steering wheel.

The passengers on board soon called an ambulance and tried to help him stem the bleeding.

Wang was rushed to hospital where he is currently recovering.

According to police, the flying pieces of metal were fragments of a car's brake hub.

"The only thing I could think at the time was stopping the vehicle to ensure the safety of my passengers," Wang said.
