Beijing - Police say an elderly Chinese man has driven his car through a crowd of pedestrians outside a popular Beijing sports stadium, injuring eight people.

The Beijing police said in a statement on Friday that the man was a city resident and had been angry about a court ruling against him.

The Beijing Times website said his car had the word "injustice" painted on it as it drove through the crowd on Friday morning.

The man was wearing a piece of fabric on his head bearing the same word.

His car finally came to a stop after slamming into other vehicles at the south gate of Workers' Stadium.
