A bus caught fire after hitting a pole, on Avenida Senador Levindo Coelho, in the Mangueiras neighborhood, Barreiro Region, in Belo Horizonte (see video above). The accident happened early this Saturday morning (3). No one is hurt.

According to information from the Military Police (PM), the driver said he was taking the bus, from line 35 (Barreiro/Center Station), to the garage when a motorcyclist made a maneuver in front of the vehicle. When he tried to dodge, he ended up hitting the post.

As a result of the collision, an electrical transformer fell onto the bus, starting the flames. The collective was completely destroyed.

According to the Minas Gerais Energy Company (Cemig), approximately one thousand addresses were left without power because of the accident.
