An out of control car in southwestern China's Kunming city has killed four people and injured 22 others on Saturday evening.
The black Volkswagen Passat drove up Beijing Road in downtown Kunming, making an illegal left turn at a crosswalk, mowing down two pedestrians.
The car did not stop after the accident, smashing road fences and careening onto a pedestrian walkway, injuring 22 others, finally stopping as it hit a stone block.
Officials from police departments and health agencies have rushed to the scene to deal with the accident and sent the injured to the hospital for medical treatment.
It is reported a city government department driver was operating the vehicle. The police have now begun a full investigation into the accident.
