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.
A Wanzhou police statement said the driver and the passenger broke the law with their actions because they seriously endangered public safety.
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.
Dashboard camera footage from another auto nearby, released earlier, had shown the bus charge onto the wrong side of the road without warning before hitting the railings of the Wanzhou Yangtze No. 2 Bridge and plunging into the river.
The bus was airlifted out of the water by around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said. This made the woman angry, so she advanced to the front of the bus and began yelling at him.

"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.
The driver turned his head to face her several times in the argument. A few seconds into the video, a woman is hitting the bus driver on his head with a phone.
The driver took his right arm off the steering wheel and fought back, grabbing the woman's arm when she attacked him again.
He then seemed to steer heavily to the left when trying to regain control, sending the bus out of control.
By Thursday, 13 bodies were found and identified, said the police.
