Delaney dumbfounded by bus driver's request after smash

Desperate Housewives star Dana Delaney was left stunned when a bus driver asked for her autograph just moments after colliding with her car.

The actress was driving through Los Angeles when she grew angry with the behavior of a fellow motorist, and was about to get out of the car to berate her when she decided to make a last-minute turn.

Delaney reveals her decision was a mistake when a bus ploughed into her vehicle - but she was left even more shocked by the driver's bizarre request.

She says, "I'd just left yoga classes at 8.30am with a cup of coffee and felt very calm driving my car until a woman behind me started hooting for me to make an immediate left turn even though people were crossing. I was about to get out to tell her to stop when the green light turned amber and I decided to make the turn...

"But at the same moment, I saw a bus coming towards me out of the corner of my eye. I thought, 'You've got to be kidding.' There was an almighty crash. My glasses had flown off and coffee was all over the place. Then the bus driver came over and when she recognized me from Desperate Housewives, she asked me for my autograph. I said, 'I don't think so.'"
