Police say a brawl between a passenger and a bus driver led to the bus plunging off a bridge in southwestern China Sunday, killing 13 people on board and leaving two missing.

Early reports said the bus had swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle.

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.

Footage published by the newspaper appeared to show the fight between the driver and passenger and then screams could be heard form the passengers as the bus veered out of control.

They said she hit the driver, named Ran, with her mobile phone when he refused to stop and let her off.

The first half is surveillance footage from the bus.
