According to Shanghaiist, an autopsy conducted by the Taiwan Police has confirmed that the bus driver, identified as Mr. Su, was drunk at the time of the accident. The driver's blood reportedly tested positive of alcoholic content of 215 mg/dL.
The alcohol content equates to approximately three liters of malt or beer which could have had significant effects in the driver's actions. Police officials further said that such level of alcohol could cause sensory malfunctions, obvious disorientation, and slurred talking. The legal alcohol content intake in Taiwan is only .15 mg/L. Anyone who exceed a .25 mg/L reading would be arrested in the country.
Initially, investigators thought that the fire might have been caused by circuit overloading and improper modifications performed on to bus's emergency and anti-theft systems. Furthermore, bottles containing flammable gasoline were reportedly found on the bus.
Taiwan Police investigators said that they could not explain the presence of gasoline on the bus since it runs on diesel. Therefore, they did not rule out the probability of arson.
