They got lucky with the glancing blow...and looks like the engineers did their homework on impacts.

How many cameras do they have on that bus? looked like three different views.

Even school busses now often have 3+ cameras. I think one I rode for coaching HS soccer had two on the driver, one facing the passengers from the front, one on the passengers in the middle, and one at the rear. Everything is recorded in case of an incident, it has been made so cheap it is basically the standard to have multiple cameras.

I guess you're right, I got a dashcam with sound on sale for $39 at Advance Auto parts.
