SPOKANE, Wash. --New video footage released from inside an STA bus Tuesday showed the commotion that occurred inside, moments before an erratic passenger ran into traffic and got hit by a minivan.

WATCH: Erratic bus passenger hit by minivan along Sprague

The man attempted to board at 5:30 p.m. from the stop at Sprague and Havana. He struggled to find his bus pass according to witnesses. Passengers said the driver held the man at the front, until he began cursing angrily.


“You cussed at me. Off the bus,” the driver demanded and threatened to call security.


The video showed that the passenger argued and eventually, took his frustration outside where he smashed in a window. Driver Diana Gehring was not expecting the erratic man to dart in front of her car.


“Something hit my window and I wasn’t sure what it was until I saw some legs,” she said.

She prayed for him as an ambulance took him away. The man’s injuries were minor according to police.
