THE "Beast from the East" snowstorm has caused chaos on Scottish roads, and a bus driver's impressive skill under pressure was all that prevented a fatal collision.

Youtuber Vauxhall Mad posted the video of the incident online yesterday after catching it on a dash cam, and it shows the Edinburgh bus driver narrowly dodging a car that skidded into the vehicle's path.

The video has already amassed more than 100,000 views.
