Three were injured after a double-decker bus smashed into a Wuhan bridge on April 27.

The bus was traveling the wrong way on Wuhan Changqing Road, couldn’t detour and smashed into He Zhujiadun Railway Bridge about 12 p.m. that Sunday, according to news21.cn.com.

More than half of the bus’ roof was sliced in half, and steel beams on the sides of the bridge were also damaged. Two passengers were seriously injured by shattered glass, and one suffered minor bruising. The three were transferred to a hospital.

Apparently the bus was traveling on the wrong side lane of the four-lane road, tried to merge, and got caught in a violent traffic jam. The driver violated the 3.5 meter bridge height limit, and smashed into the railway overhead.

Prior to the accident, the man had been driving this bus route for three years. He has since been sacked from his position, and sanctions such as alternative routes during times of heavy congestion have apparently been added to his former route.

This crash follows a similar incident that occurred at He Zhujiadun Railway Bridge in October 2013.
