Incredible footage shows a Chinese bus driver fighting a passenger right before he loses control of his bus. On October 28, 2018, the No. 22 bus was traveling across a bridge in the Chongqing Municipality in China, when it crashed into a car and veered off the bridge, plunging into the Yangtze River. Investigators first believed that the bus driver lost control of the bus after he tried to avoid another vehicle. However, new footage shows a fight caused the bus driver to lose control, reports the BBC.

A 48-year-old woman surnamed Liu was mad at the bus driver because he missed her stop. In the video, the bus driver and the woman get into a verbal altercation. They start yelling at each other. She then smacks the man with her phone.
