Man drives into crowd of pedestrians

26 December 2014, 09:53

Beijing — An elderly Chinese man drove his car through a crowd of pedestrians outside a popular Beijing sports stadium Friday morning, injuring eight people in what appeared to be a protest against an unfavorable court ruling, police said.

The Beijing man, with the surname of Jin, had recently lost the a property dispute in court, according to a statement by Beijing police. The Beijing Times website said his car had the word "injustice" painted on it as it drove through the crowd Friday morning. The man was wearing a piece of fabric on his head bearing the same word.

His car finally came to a stop after slamming into other vehicles at the south gate of Workers' Stadium.

Such attacks on schoolchildren, pedestrians and other innocent bystanders have become regular occurrences in China, as people vent their frustrations over legal disputes, slights and other perceived injustices.
