China bus crash caused by fight between passenger and driver

Footage shows fight between driver and passenger before bus crashes off bridge in China

Fist fight between bus driver and passenger caused deadly crash in Chongqing

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.

Chongqing police say the female passenger was hitting the driver because she was upset after missing her stop.

The video shows that they exchange more blows before the driver loses control of the bus, strikes a auto and careens through the four-lane bridge's railing into the Yangtze. She walked up to the driver's seat and scolded him.

The driver turned his head back several times during the argument. The driver, with one hand on the wheel, hits back.

The official Xinhua News Agency said Friday 13 bodies had been retrieved from the river and two others were still missing.

Another video, taken from a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, shows the bus swerving widely on the bridge and crashing through the barricades before its fatal plunge.

Their last stop on the tour was Rotorua on New Zealand's North Island, a town known for its geothermal activity and Maori culture. Dressed casually in jeans and rainboots they got stuck into the activities and games, which included planting a Kowhai tree.

After the driver refused to stop, Liu hit the driver's head with her cellphone.

Originally, witnesses reported seeing the bus swerve to avoid another vehicle but distressing new footage has emerged showing the real cause of the accident: a fist fight between an irate passenger and the driver.

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