According to a report and video that surfaced, a bus traveling through the Chongqinq section of China veered off a bridge after the bus driver and a passenger got into an altercation.

The bus was retrieved from the river on Wednesday, and investigators were able to obtain the footage from the vehicle's surveillance system.

When she struck him again, he abruptly turned the steering wheel left, swerving into oncoming traffic before crashing into the railings on the side of a bridge - screaming can be heard as the video stops.

The Wanzhou police statement said the behaviour of both the driver and the passenger seriously endangered public safety and violated the law. However, Liu did not get off and later asked the driver to stop the bus when she realised she missed her destination. The driver said there were no designated bus stops nearby.

"The investigation showed that a 48-year-old female passenger, surnamed Liu, planned to get off at a certain stop, but the bus had to make a detour and would not arrive there due to road maintenance", reported China's state-run Xinhua news agency.
