t least five are dead and 18 wounded after a car crashed into a group of children outside of a primary school in Huludao city, Liaoning province earlier today.
The horrific incident occurred at around noon when the children were crossing a wide road in front of the school’s entrance. Footage of the crash shows the black Audi A6 driving the wrong way down the street, heading straight for the group of kids. The vehicle plows through the children, leaving behind body strewn across the street.

Footage of the bloody aftermath of the crash has also been shared. Viewer discretion is similarly advised:
After smashing through the crowd of children, the driver fled the scene, but was caught by police later that day.
At this point, it’s not clear what caused the crash — if it was an extremely careless error made by the driver or if he was indeed intent on killing as many children as he could. Unfortunately, both of these possibilities are all too likely in China where inexperienced drivers cause devastating accidents and troubled individuals slaughter schoolchildren.
