A terrible head-on collision between two buses in Tamil Nadu's Salem district was captured on a video camera installed in one of the vehicles.

The impact threw the driver and passengers off their seats as the bus came to an abrupt stop with a shattered windscreen and screams of terrified passengers renting the air.

The victims have been admitted to hospitals in Salem and Edappadi.
