On Sunday October 28, 2018 a Chinese bus plunged off a bridge killing fifteen passengers after a woman attacked the driver. A female passenger attacked the male driver with her cell phone when she missed her stop. He tried to fight back with his right arm, but he was driving. 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. The bus landed in the water more than seventy meters deep. The authorities blamed the forty two year-old driver for not following proper safety procedures. The bus was also found to have no mechanical issues. The bus was pulled out of the river on Wednesday, and divers have so far recovered thirteen bodies with two still missing.
