Eight pupils and a teacher have been hurt, two seriously, after a car mounted a pavement near a Hong Kong school on Friday.
The car knocked down roadside pillars when it ran onto the pavement in Sheung Shui and travelled for another 10 metres before crashing into a wall at the St John Ambulance's headquarters on Tin Ping Road shortly before 4pm. One of the pupils was trapped under the vehicle, a black Volkswagen Golf, and had to be freed by firefighters.
The male teacher, 31, and the eight Primary Three pupils were returning to Lee Chi Tat Memorial School after athletics training nearby at the time of the incident.
The 45-year-old driver said she lost control of the car because she felt unwell.
The pair who were seriously injured were rushed to North District Hospital in Sheung Shui, and Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital in Tai Po.
Other victims were also hospitalised after being treated at the site, and St John Ambulance members helped treat the wounded.
According to the Fire Services Department, the victims sustained a variety of fractures and bruises.
The driver's condition was not immediately available, and police were investigating the incident.
