An 8-year-old primary school student was killed and seven other people were hurt when an out-of-control SUV slammed into a crowd outside a school gate on Monday afternoon.

The driver, a woman surnamed Zhang, 34, was picking her child up from Changqiao Primary School, Xicheng district at about 3 pm.

She mistakenly stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake of her Hyundai SUV, said the Sina microblog of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau (PSB) Monday.

The woman is being questioned by police.

The boy, also surnamed Zhang, died after being treated for about four hours at Peking University First Hospital, the Beijing News reported Tuesday.
