A man has been arrested after killing 11 people and injuring 44 others on Wednesday night at a crowded public square in Hengdong county, Hunan province.
At least 46 people were hurt, three of them seriously, when a red Land Rover plowed into a crowd at 7:40 p.m. local time (7:40 am ET), the media office in Hengyang said.
Video images on state media show several bodies on the ground.
The government originally said three people died, but raised the death toll in subsequent statements.

The driver deliberately rammed his vehicle into pedestrians on the Mijiang Square, said the statement posted by the Hengyang government on the official social media account. Local officials said these clashes with the law had caused Yang to harbor a desire to exact "revenge on society". Authorities have no yet given a motive and no official mention of terrorism has been made. Yang, whose gender has not been revealed, has a long criminal record including convictions for drug dealing and theft, Reuters reported.
Occasionally, the attacks are attributed to militant separatists, though such incidents have become less common in recent years amid a stifling security crackdown.
The government is generally nervous about such incidents after a auto ploughed through pedestrians in the northern part of Beijing's Tiananmen Square in 2013, killing the three people in the vehicle and two bystanders. Last year, police said a man set off an explosion at the front gate of a kindergarten in eastern China, which struck as relatives gathered to pick up their children at the end of the day, killing eight people. Islamist extremists claimed responsibility for both attacks.
