Nine people were killed and 46 others injured when a car hit a crowded square in southern China.

The car arrived at the square in the city of Mishui, part of the city of Hengyang in Hunan province, on Wednesday night with the driver stopped.

Video images in state media show several bodies on the ground.

Initially, the government said three people died but raised the death toll to nine in a statement late on Wednesday.
