Chinese man drives car into students, injuring 13
BEIJING (AP) - A man in northern China has rammed a car loaded with a gas tank and firecrackers into a group of middle school students, injuring 13.
The official Xinhua News Agency reported that the man attempted to set off an explosion after running down 23 students at Fengning No. 1 Middle School in northern China's Hebei province on Monday. The man is in police custody.
Xinhua did not identify the man in its report on Tuesday, but said his daughter was killed in a suspected murder case three years ago and he has a history of lodging complaints with authorities. Xinhua said the man did not act under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The local Fengning county government confirmed the incident in a written statement and identified the man by his family name of Yin. It said Yin was driving a Geely sedan.
