Huludao,China, Nov 22 (IBNS) : A car ploughed into a crowd of children outside a primary school in northeastern China on Thursday, killing five people and injuring 18, state media reported.

The driver was taken into custody after the crash that took place around noon (local time) in the coastal city of Huludao in Liaoning province, state broadcaster CCTV said.

Eighteen people were hospitalized with injuries, the reports said. The cause was under investigation, according to the reports.

Security camera footage showed a line of children crossing the street in front of their school when a car approaches, then changes lanes and swerves into a crowd of the children.

While it wasn’t clear if the crash was a deliberate attack, China has recently seen a number of such incidents.  Last month, a knife-wielding man drove a vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians in the eastern city of Ningbo, killing two people and wounding 16.

In September, 11 people were killed and 44 hospitalized after a man drove an SUV deliberately into people at a plaza in the central province of Hunan, before jumping out and attacking victims with a dagger and shovel.
