Official Chinese media say rescuers have salvaged the wreckage of a bus that plunged off a bridge into the Yangtze River four days earlier and have recovered nine bodies.

A video retrieved from the black box of the bus shows a passenger scuffling with the driver moments before the crash.

According to police, the female passenger, identified as a 48-year-old woman surnamed Liu, was angry about having missed her stop and wanted the driver, surnamed Ran, to stop immediately to let her out, however, the driver refused to do so.

Deadly road accidents are common in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted or go unenforced.

The bus collided with an oncoming vehicle before smashing through the guardrail and into the Yangtze River on Sunday. Approximately 15 people were on board, cops said. The footage shows the fight between the driver and the woman.

The driver turned his head to face her several times in the argument.

As the quarrel escalated, the statement said, the woman hit the driver on the head with her cellphone.

A search and rescue operation was launched on the Yangtze river near Chongqing in southwest China on October 28.

Rescue teams said that at least 13 people died, while two remaining passengers are still unaccounted for following the accident. A passenger is seen hitting the driver, who hits back, then loses control of the bus, which begins shaking violently, apparently upon impact with something. "The driver's right hand came off the steering wheel during the altercation, which led to the steering wheel turning sharply to the left".

Another video, taken from a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, shows the bus swerving widely on the bridge and crashing through the barricades before its fatal plunge.
