SUV crashes into crowd at square in central China, killing 3

BEIJING (AP) — An official Chinese newspaper says an SUV crashed into a crowd at a public square in central China, killing at least three people and injuring more than 40 others.

The Beijing Youth Daily said on its official microblog account that police have arrested the suspected driver of a red SUV that plowed into a large group of people at the square in the town of Mishui in Hunan province on Wednesday evening.

The newspaper, a publication of the ruling Communist Party’s youth league, said a preliminary estimate showed that the crash killed three people and injured 43 others.

It cited police as identifying the suspect as a 54-year-old man from the same county who had served several prison sentences for convictions including arson and assault.
