The bus is shown weaving recklessly through traffic before ramming into two cars but continues its shocking rampage.
It smashes into several other vehicles nearly 100 metres after the first collision and is then caught in gridlocked traffic.
One of the motorcyclists who recorded a clip gets off his bike and continues the chase.
Another video shows a man in an orange shirt – believed to be the bus driver – sitting on the ground. His face is bruised and an angry crowd can be heard shouting at him while someone asks him why he tried to run away.
Facebook user Azri Arip, who uploaded the videos, alleged that the bus rammed into a car in Taman Keramat AU2, causing the vehicle to plough into his burger stall.
He also claimed that his mother, who was carrying a two-month-old baby, was hit by the vehicle.
Azri also alleged that he pursued the bus from Taman Keramat AU2 to Ampang near the Middle Ring Road 2 junction.
City traffic investigation and enforcement department chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya confirmed the case, adding that the bus rammed into seven vehicles.
“The incident took place around 8pm in front of the Risda building along Jalan Ampang before the bus came to a halt near the MRR2-Jalan Ampang intersection.
The bus driver has been taken to the Ampang Hospital for medical treatment.
“Our investigation officer is at the scene to gather more information,” he said.
Meanwhile, RapidKL spokesperson Azhar Ghazali said that they were getting full details of what happened.
