China bus plunged off bridge after woman attacked driver

A 10-second clip from the on-board camera released by Chongqing police showed a female passenger yelling at the male driver while he was steering, shortly after 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Reports in the local media cited by EuroNews say that the woman missed her bus stop and, when she realized it, immediately asked the driver to pull over so she could get off.

Thirteen bodies were reported to have been found.

China is still reeling from a tragic incident in which a bus swerved off a bridge, plummeting 60 meters into the icy waters of the Yangtze river, killing all 15 people on board but now shocking footage has revealed the cause. She walked up to the driver's seat and scolded him.

The bus then lost control and veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided into an oncoming vehicle before breaking through fencing and flying off a bridge over the river.

"The behaviour of both the passenger and driver has severely endangered the safety of all other passengers and has violated the law, ' police said, adding the tragedy served as an 'extremely painful lesson".
