Danny Cipriani reveals he was lucky not to DIE after being hit by a bus on team night out with Sale...
Danny Cipriani has revealed how he nearly died after being hit by a bus and believes his late actions saved him from being involved in a fatal accident on a night out.
The former England rugby international was on a night out with a group of Sale Sharks team-mates a decade ago when a moment of drunken madness saw him sprint across the road and into the path of an oncoming bus.
Cipriani at the time was taking part in a pub crawl known as the Otley Run with his colleagues and in his attempts to run away from one of the group stepped out in front of a bus.
The 35-year-old, who is still without a club, explained how he has struggled with alcohol and drugs in the past and believes he was lucky to escape with his life after the incident.
