Miraculously no one was injured on Thursday afternoon when a car rolled forward on Opaki Rd, Masterton, and crashed into a bus.
The incident happened just after 3pm on the stretch of road between First and Third streets.
A police media spokeswoman said police attending the crash found the car to be locked with nobody inside.
"Which insinuates the handbrake may have been left off."
The spokeswoman said the bus had been empty at the time of the crash and no one was injured.
"The road was partially blocked but one lane was still moving on Opaki Rd."
