fatal bus crash in China

Shocking video footage shows a fist fight between a bus driver and a passenger in the final moments before the city bus plunged off a bridge, killing everyone on board.

The tragic bus crash occurred Oct. 28 in the Chongqing Municipality of China. Chongqing police released an eight-second video compilation from the interior of the bus and the dash cam of an oncoming car.

The video shows the bus veering into the wrong lane where it collided with a car before crashing through the bridge guardrail. The bus plunged 197 feet into the Yangtze River.

According to a statement from the Wanzhou district police, the 48-year-old female passenger asked the driver to pull over because she missed her stop, but the driver refused.

During the ensuing argument, the passenger hit the driver with her cell phone. The driver took his right hand off the wheel to fight back, as the bus veered out of control.

News footage shows rescue workers lifting the mangled bus from the river in southwestern China. 13 bodies have been recovered and 2 are still missing, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.

    wow, horrible! RIP to all involved.

  • FukkFolks2018

    this is awful. Lord have mercy

  • Renee26

    Ok was this driver high??? He was more focused on arguing with that woman than he was looking at the road…and it looked to me like he purposely turned into traffic. He said fugg everybody that day

    She was a lunatic for trying to fight with the driver… That’s an indication of crazy if a person tries to fight in a moving vehicle

  • therealashland

    Chinese women are pure bat ? crap crazy

  • 100milesperhour

    I understand instincts kick in when you’ve been assaulted, but the driver took all focus off driving over a BRIDGE (over water) & totally lost it. If that woman didn’t die, they should’ve beat her asz on the way to the police station.

  • Jess

    It looks like he did this on purpose his face was calm as he steered all the way over he had enough and decided to end it for everyone. Horrific

  • Renee26

    Yes… He turned the wheel like he was making the average left turn. There was no ohhh shiiiiit moment seen by my eyes

  • Coy little wink

    I can’t watch final moment videos…I saw left eye’s and junior’s that was enough for me….

  • Jess

    Exactly! This wasn’t an accident

  • Arii

    It doesn’t matter what happened now. Everyone’s dead. Bus drivers should be enclosed behind bullet proof glass.

  • xenaD

    First of all, it looks like she hit him with something, why is she fighting with the bus driver on a fast moving bus over the bridge… and second of all it looks like he definitely did this on purpose.. I just don’t think he thought it would end like that

  • Hunni24

    Maybe she had a premonition and that’s why she was trying to get off.

  • Bashi22

    China is going give that lady life in prison

  • 100milesperhour

    Wow. I posted before seeing this. Maybe that’s why she wanted to be let off on a bridge. That’s not normal for buses to do.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Look like he did that on purpose. She should have waited smh now because you missed your stop everyone has to die ?? Lord I know you see what’s going on down here help us

  • MrsSpice1

    She died. Can u read?

  • cherrypie

    It did look like he did it on purpose…the way he turned the wheel smh

  • MrsSpice1

    ?????…wow ur a genius and can read..

  • MrsSpice1

    Well look like ya done it b4 ? such contradiction…

  • MrsSpice1

    U dont know what u will do when someone is assaulting u while driving!!

  • cherrypie

    Never could watch Junior’s. Just the still shot haunts me. SMH

  • Quitedeliteful

    An entire busload of passengers have to suffer because of the antics of two idiots. I would have driven that bus to the nearest police station and had her arrested. So sad…

  • MrsSpice1

    To be assaulted while driving a big bus and loose focus just for one second can lead to fatal repurcussions…he clearly lost all sense of control in one second and forgot he was driving a bus full of innocent lives other then the angry bird who flew out her seat…sad! But…this is an example of how getting angry or loosing control can cost you. Or many lives: its easy to say or assume the Driver is soley responsible or couldve done this or that..but truthfully u just dont know unless u were there and if u were u wouldnt be here to tell! Its just an unfortunate and crucial example of how a reaction to any action impulsively can cost u more then u bargain for.

  • Carrington

    I don’t think he did it on purpose. He was trying to correct himself after he hit her back and lost control. He over corrected because he was focusing on what she was going to do instead of focusing on the road. Which is unfortunate, but understandable. If someone is standing next to you arguing and acting a fool while you’re driving across a bridge, you don’t know what to do… pay attention to the road, or pay attention to her in case she’s going to attack you and you lose control… or try to pay attention to both.
    He didn’t do it on purpose.

  • Rere

    O.M.G so sad

  • MJ

    If you pay attention you’ll see him hard turn to the left. He did it on purpose. Had he planned it before hand or just decided in a split moment..don’t know. But he did this intentionally

  • xenaD

    Lol

  • xenaD

    I’m sure u are correct.

  • Coy little wink

    Such failure at reading comprehension…

  • MJ

    Exactly. Very decided and intentional left TURN. No panic. Nothing in front of him to try to avoid. The video shows that before he turned left he was going straight. He did it on purpose?????

  • Yardgirl

    Thank you. I did not have the energy to state this.

  • SpiceGirl

    IF he did this on purpose, Why take the rest of the folks with you? Smgdh…..may they ALL rest easy….Just sad!

  • Peppermint Patty

    You knoooo, I’ve noticed that and in retrospect they are constantly barking and in this state of immediate frenzy….but it is cloaked by them being docile and very quiet on the flip side….psychopathic tendencies but everybody got something to say bout black women….

  • Rayne

    She could’ve killed them all smh you don’t fight ppl in a car ?

  • Judi Jupiter

    Like in nyc…lol

  • Gloria

    Seems like she did kill them all. There are no survivors noted.

  • guest

    Sad…and unfortunate! He should’ve pulled over afta she struck him. Bad decision on his part.

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins
  • Gloria

    Lol right!

  • Trey

    hold up….buddy didnt have the instinct to hit the damn brakes and throw that thing in park while he having a fight!!

  • Trace da Ace

    RIP….damn….

  • Rayne

    Oh no!!

  • more

    Wonderfuly said!

  • sunni_daze

    He did that ish on purpose. He was steady turning the wheel into on-coming

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Dun Dilly

    HMMM…seems to me, that bus driver decided to end it all.

  • Guess Who

    HOLY SHYT!

  • Keyshia Ray

    Wow!!!!!

  • Pamela

    She dead too.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well this dumb bish won’t ever have to worry about missing her stop again.

  • Pamela

    Who’s Junior?

  • Pamela

    She dead.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Huh?

    it was a natural reaction and it only took a second for the accident to happen.

  • Bashi22

    Wasn’t off the bus

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nurp…I shall pass on watch’n the clip

  • cherrypie

    The young man from the NY who was murdered earlier this year by a group of gang members in a bodega. It was filmed and no one helped it.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Exactly. He was very nonchalantly holding that damn steering wheel and moving like he was parked or something, SELFISH ARSEHOLES!!!!

  • Reenaface

    This is unfortunate news, in my state the buses have the glass/parition separating the drivers and preventing the passengers from assaulting the driver’s. China should look into implementing partitions for their drivers. I would have been frustrated if I missed my stop but was an accident worth having to walk a few extra blocks, just put some earbuds on and get moving.

  • Pamela

    Ooh yes now recall that sad sad incident..

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    TWO IDIOTS.
    EVERYONE IS DEAD BECAUSE OF THOSE TWO FOOLS.

  • hi-liter

    I blame this all on the stoopid azz lady….but I wish the man had just stopped the bus and beat her azz (she deserved it). I don’t understand why he was still trying to drive with her knocking the shat out of him.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    EXACTLY! This was totally avoidable and utterly TRAGIC.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    The driver should’ve stopped to beat her axx! I’d be mad af if I was minding my business and she got me flipped over a bridge.

  • hi-liter

    No need to ask people can they read. I hate when yall come here with 10 comments and try to clown other people.

  • Bashi22

    Only count

  • Guest

    What is wrong with people? It’s like everyone is off their meds or something. Why are you hitting someone who is driving? Crazy much?

  • Nina Ross

    I agree

  • Nina Ross

    This is horrible

  • bemetoo

    Well you would be dead ?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    It looks intentional to me. He clearly turns the wheel sharply for no reason and doesn’t swerve back right or look panicked at all as they drive off the bridge, which took several seconds. He probably missed her stop on purpose too. Murder/suicide.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Its a big change from 20 years ago just going to a job site and you can see people are losing their minds

  • Marlika

    Let me tell as soon as our spirits passed on to the other side I would be the dog sh? out of her and been on my way to hell!?

  • Soon2BWife

    Dog walk her dumb arse!!!! He is wrong af too! He was charged with keeping passengers safe not engage with some silly fool and kill everyone.

  • Ateya

    Watching it over and over I wish he would’ve just let her off when she said SIR, I missed my stop…can you let me off. But he didn’t. Sad…

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    That’s the obvious….i’ll be at the pearly gates with my arms folded mad at the world that I’m out the game.

  • Patricia

    he should have stopped that damned bus right there in the middle of the road and beat her azz and kicked her off the bus.

  • Patricia

    nope bc i stop the car to knock the snot out my kids or give my husband (or whomever needs it) a weekly cussing out, so, i would have known to pull that bad boy over and handle business. its tragic he held all these peoples lives in his hands. he should have stopped the bus immediately.

  • Sauvignon blanc and Weed?

    ?

  • Eileen

    China needs Jesus!

  • Karen Brady

    *chuckles* please don’t.

  • trisha hunter

    Sure don’t! She has a more permanent stop now. Just utterly ridiculously. Even if he didn’t have to stop for that fool, he should have been the better person and stopped just to keep piece. But neither one of them would let up, now innocent people are dead because of stubbornness and foolery. Too bad it was more than those 2 nutcases on that bus. Smh

  • bemetoo

    ???

  • bemetoo

    ????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Nobody lived. Sad and avoidable.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Some times you have to back down even when it’s not your fault.

  • Malai

    babyyyy junior’s death broke me DOWN…i literally went into depression behind that it was so heartbreaking…I could not watch the video of him being attacked

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Remember this is China a totalitarian government.

    Who knows what the penalty he would have received if he had been late for his next stop.

  • Queen B

    He said “your stop is right here bih” and flew his azz off that bridge. He clearly did it on purpose just watch how he handles the wheel with no intentions to steer back on the road

  • Rhondalousey

    After that cell phone hit he should’ve stopped the bus and put her azz off on the bridge. Smh, rip everyone.

  • Rhondalousey

    Wow.

  • Black4life

    Their very violent people…docile my a**.

  • Jussjess25

    My God those poor souls ! Over two peoples dumb decision.. my heart hurts for those people. Rip

  • Jersey Girl

    Looks that way for real..no yelling or nothing

  • GrapeCrush

    According to the news, ironically, the driver and the woman who assaulted him actually SURVIVED. ?????

  • Real Proper

    After she hit him seems like he just gave up on life this was no accident Rip innocent souls

  • Marlika

    They both would get hands and feet!!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    That STUPID lady is mostly at fault for this senseless accident. The man reacted out of frustration, and now innocent lives have been taken from their love one. This is sad on so many levels… I wonder what in the world the argument was about…. #smh

  • Soon2BWife

    Now it makes all the more sense. That man was disrespected but he was also thinking this crazy fool could have caused an acvident and killed me and all my passengers!
