Bus plunges into Chinese river after fight between driver and passenger

The video shows the driver and the passenger attacking each other as the vehicle turns into the opposite lane, hits the guardrail and falls off a bridge over the Yangtze River and into the water.

Shocking footage has been released of the moment a bus veered off a bridge in China, killing at least 13 people.

Police in China released dashcam footage of the fatal bus crash. This made the woman angry, so she advanced to the front of the bus and began yelling at him.

According to the China Daily, a female passenger named Liu had missed her stop and asked the driver to stop immediately.

All those onboard are presumed dead.

A search and rescue operation was launched on the Yangtze river near Chongqing in southwest China on October 28.

When he refused, the woman became enraged and hit him with her mobile phone before the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Rescuers recovered the wreck of the bus Wednesday night. The driver's right hand came off the steering wheel during the altercation, which led to the steering wheel turning sharply to the left, the report said. The driver of the auto which was hit by the bus was said to have sustained some injuries.

A Wanzhou police statement said the driver and the passenger broke the law with their actions because they seriously endangered public safety.

The Chongqing police also posted dashcam video from a nearby auto showing the bus colliding with an oncoming vehicle before smashing through a guardrail and falling into the Yangtze, a major river in southwestern China.

The passenger and driver have been identified by their surname as 48-year-old Liu and 42-year-old Ran, both from Wanzhou, police added.
