Far canal! Not a bus anyone wanted to be on...

I don't know about the fight being the cause - it looks more like the driver made a decision to simply steer the bus off the road.. and off the bridge  :(

I wonder if any of the 13 or so dead wished they had intervened?

Have to agree, I think he just drove it off.

An argument yes, but then he calmly puts a shed load of lock on, by choice.  :-\

The Driver got distracted whilst Driving a Bus, so anything can happen.

What should have happened is the Bus Driver to stop the Bus, put a Emergency Radio Call out and if necessary deal with the Passenger whilst the Bus is stationary and awaiting for Police or Back Up to show up. Thats pretty much the Procedure on the rest of the Planet.

He put huge amount of lock on, bit of side to side yes, but full turn and in the wrong direction?  :-\

Should of just stamped on the brakes if it was serious. Agree with Aaron here, horrible for the passengers.

This being China, they would have docked the passenger some "social credits" .. and then promptly disappeared him and his family  :-X
