An 83-year-old man was riding bus No. 606 in Tianjin on the morning of May 22 when he missed his stop. Instead of doing what normal people might, which is to get off at the next stop and backtrack, he threw a massive fit, lost control, and berated the bus driver, “I didn’t see you stop at all!”
And then the old man seized the driver by the shoulder while the bus was still moving — something no one should do.
The driver jerked the steering wheel counterclockwise as other passengers began screaming in the background.
No. 606 slammed into a bus on its left before veering to the right and crashing through a barrier, coming to a stop before completely going onto the other side of the road.
Luckily, after all this, only two people were injured, and none seriously, according to the news report.
The old man was reprimanded — sternly, we imagine — but there was no word about whether he would incur serious punishment. The case remains under investigation.
