15:31, December 25, 2012

SHIJIAZHUANG, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- A man allegedly disgruntled with society drove a car into a group of students during their lunch break in north China, leaving 13 hospitalized, local officials said Tuesday.

The man ran down 23 students of Fengning No. 1 Middle School, located in the county seat of the Manchu Autonomous County of Fengning, Hebei Province, at noon on Monday, police said. His identity has not been made public.

Of the 13 students in hospital, one has a skull fracture, the bones in another's feet are crushed and one is suffering from broken blood vessels in his eyeballs. The ten others incurred only minor injuries, Fengning officials said, citing sources with the hospital.

An initial probe cleared the man of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

However, the police probe found that the man had a gas tank and firecrackers stored in the car and he attempted to set off an explosion after hitting the students.

According to police records, the man has a history of lodging complaints. Three years ago he encountered tragedy when his daughter was murdered.

The motive behind the attack remains unclear, as the man has not yet opened up to investigators, police officials said.
