The 49-year-old male was clipped by the vehicle's bull bar.

His hip sockets were shattered and several ribs were broken.

He remains in intensive care in a stable condition.

The injured woman was one of four female passengers on the minibus.

Traffic was slowed down for an hour after the incident.
