Many killed as driver, passenger quarrel onboard bus in China

Authorities confirmed that at least 13 people have been killed after the bus veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided with an oncoming auto before smashing through roadside barriers and flying off a bridge in Chongqing's Wanzhou District last Sunday.

The bus was lifted out of the water on Wednesday night.

A scuffle between a driver and a passenger caused their bus to plunge from a bridge into a river in southwest China, killing at least 13 people, police said Friday.

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.

Four passengers, who got off earlier, confirmed that a medium-height woman had quarrelled with the driver because she missed her stop, local police said.




After he refused, she his his head with her mobile phone.

More than 70 rescue boats came to the scene, including three floating cranes with a total capacity of 125 tonnes.

The bus was travelling at a speed of 51 kmph (31 mph) at the time of the accident, police said, adding that the investigation has ruled out any mechanical failure as a cause of the accident. The driver, with one hand on the wheel, hits back.

Another said it was "heartbreaking" to hear the terrified passengers, while a Weibo user called Liza said there should be a law banning passengers from distracting bus drivers.

Thirteen bodies were found and two people were listed as missing.

A police statement said a female passenger started quarrelling with the driver after she missed her stop.
