Chinese state media report five people have died and 18 were hospitalized with injuries from a car plowing into a crowd outside a primary school in a northeastern city.

State broadcaster CCTV says the vehicle's driver was taken into custody after the crash Thursday in the coastal city of Huludao in Liaoning province.

The cause was under investigation, although China has seen a number of recent deliberate vehicle attacks. A woman who answered the phone at Huludao police headquarters said they could not reveal anything yet.
