HOUSTON -

Exclusive video released shows that a METRO bus driver had little to no time to react when a suspect trying to get away from cops darted in front of the bus.

According to police, the man was trying to run away from an officer after he stole an 18 pack of beer.

The accident happened November 18 and left the suspect with multiple broken bones. He's been identified as 35-year-old Kerrick Demone Parker.

In video released by METRO on Tuesday, Parker can be seen running in front of the bus. The front windshield then shatters as the bus veers to the left.

Houston police say the suspected thief is facing charges of evading arrest and theft. He remains hospitalized.
