A fight between a bus driver and a passenger who missed her stop caused the bus to plunge off a high bridge into China's Yangtze River, police said Friday.

A 10-second clip from the on-board camera released by Chongqing police showed a female passenger yelling at the male driver while he was steering, shortly after 10 a.m. on Sunday. Rescuers recovered the wreck of the bus on Wednesday night. The bus drove off the bridge, which is 160 feet above the river.

Deadly road accidents are common in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted or go unenforced.

Due to the loss of control of the bus, which was travelling on a bridge in China, the bus swerved widely and hit a auto before crashing through the bridge railing and plunging around 160 feet (that's just just 20 feet shorter than the recently-inaugurated Statue of Unity, by the way) into the river.
