Texas student survives being hit by bus

It was all fun and games on the streets of Austin, Texas until a college student stepped out into the road. That's when he was struck by a city bus that ran a red light.

Amazingly, the University of Texas student suffered only minor injuries.

Students were taking part in a ritual event where they fight other students across the street, with foam swords.

The driver of the bus could be disciplined if it's determined he was at fault.
