It follows a wave of recent attacks on children in China, which have prompted authorities to increase security around schools and led to calls for research into the root causes of such violence.
In the latest attack on Monday, the man drove into a crowd of students in Hebei province, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing local police.
The report did not say how old the victims were, though the students at the school they attended would range in age from 11 to 18.
The man was identified as 48-year-old Yin Tiejun, who was described as divorced and without a stable job. . . .
