When the driver hits her back, he loses control of the steering wheel, causing the bus to veer to the left.
Security camera footage from the bridge shows the bus veering onto oncoming traffic, crashing into a red car and plunging off the bridge.

According to authorities’ investigation, a 48-year-old female passenger wanted to get off the bus, but the driver had to make a detour due to road maintenance, Xinhua news agency reported.
