(Reuters) - A driver in the Los Angeles area escaped his SUV as it dangled off of a cliff only to be hit by a tour bus, police said on Sunday.

The unidentified man lost control of his SUV on Malibu Canyon Road, about 30 miles (50 km) east of Los Angeles, where it came to rest hanging off a cliff on Saturday afternoon, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said on Facebook.

The disoriented driver was struck by a passing tour bus after he climbed out the vehicle, the department said.

The man was taken to the hospital as the incident remained under investigation, according to the sheriff's department.
