May 27, 2013: An 83-year-old passenger has attacked the driver of a bus in northern China, causing a nine-vehicle smash.

An elderly man in China has allegedly caused a nine-vehicle accident by attacking a bus driver after he refused to pull over and missed the man's stop.

The crash occurred at Tianjin in China's north on Wednesday but the footage has just been released, Digital Journal reports.

The 83-year-old passenger reportedly became enraged when the bus driver told him he could not let him get off in a no-stopping zone.

CCTV taken inside the bus shows the 83-year-old berating the driver before punching him in the face and attempting to pull him off his seat.

The driver almost fell off but somehow managed to keep a hand on the steering wheel, possibly limiting the extent of the damage caused by the crash.

Footage taken from a camera above the driver shows him colliding with a number of cars while narrowly avoiding others.

Commuters can be seen gripping the overhead rails as the vehicle darts back and forth wildly.

Despite causing an nine-vehicle accident, no injuries were reported.
