Originally, it had been thought that the vehicle was pushed off the bridge by demonstrators, but new footage of the incident has come to light that shows that what caused the armored car to plunge off the side of the freeway was aggressive reverse driving.

In the video the car is seen approaching protesters, where it rams a bus. The car is then attacked by protesters, at which point it reverses course and promptly drives itself off the free way.

It looks like somebody didn’t pay attention in driver’s ed.
