Near the city of Chongping, southwest China, a riot broke out between the passenger and the bus driver on a flight that became physical bargaining. The driver lost control of the vehicle, sinking into the Yangtze River. At least 13 people died and two are missing.
According to police, a 48-year-old housewife did not approve of the exit with the desired bus station, so she went to the driver and asked if she could go. Since it was rejected, the "aggressive" word change broke out. The woman hit the driver with a head and flapped her hand.
The passenger then attacked the driver again, but turned sharply to the opposite vehicle. A bus of 15 people collided with a car, broke the protective fence and plunged it into the Yangtze River.
