Xinhua News Agency said the man, identified as 48-year-old Yin Tiejun, ran down 23 students on Monday and then lit a bottle of diesel to set his car on fire.

Authorities report that Yin has been upset for years that a court did not sentence to death all four assailants involved in the murder of his daughter three years ago. The report did not give further details of the murder but said the children hurt in Monday’s car crash were not tied to the case.

Yin has been detained on charges of endangering public safety, Xinhua said.

Xinhua said the man did not act under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Students were hospitalized with injuries that included skull fractures and crushed feet, Xinhua said.

The local Fengning county government confirmed the incident in a written statement.
