Chinese state media on Sunday, July 5, released surveillance camera footage showing the moment a bus hit the railings of a bridge and fell into a river in northeast Jilin province, killing at least 11 people and injuring 17.

Ten South Korean nationals and a Chinese driver were killed when the bus careened off a bridge at around 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday (July 1) in Jian City. The bus was carrying 28 people.

Eight of the injured were South Korean and in a serious condition. Jian City Traffic Police Unit Captain, Su Wenbo stated the recorded speed suggested the driver was exceeding the limit.

The speeds we have recorded (for the bus) range from 88 to 64 kilometres. (The driver) clearly had already surpassed the speed limit on that road. Thus, the preliminary investigation found that the main cause of the accident was that the driver, Mr. Wang, surpassed the speed limit, and turned while improperly operating (the vehicle).

China’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that China expressed its “profound condolences” for the victims. An investigation into the cause of the crash was underway, state-run news agency Xinhua said.
