Thanks for posting that! I saw the news article but hadn't seen the video. What quick thinking by the bus driver and second car!!

Some other interesting bits about that crash are that the biker is Frank Pavlick, bicycling safety expert and the manager of the Coalition for Appropriate Transportation's Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative. A "four-feet clearance past bikes" law had just gone into effect 15 hours before he was hit. And it looks like that cop arrived within seconds of the crash, just by luck. Amazing!
