The driver of the minivan was held for questioning as authorities investigated the cause of the accident, according to Xinhua News Agency. The minivan was from the Chunlei kindergarten, which does not have a license from the government to operate.

CCTV reported that the minivan was traveling too fast and swerved to avoid a parked vehicle on the side of the road, which is when it plunged off the road into the pond. The Information Center for Human Rights & Democracy released a statement, without sources cited, that said the van was constructed to hold seven people, but 17 were in it when the accident happened. Also, the human rights group said that it took 70 minutes for an ambulance to respond to the accident.
