Five children and a junior high school teacher were injured Wednesday morning when a car careened into them in Osaka Prefecture, police and rescue workers said. The driver blamed “blinding sunshine.”

The three boys and two girls, ages 6 to 12, and the teacher, 55, were walking to school in the city of Hirakata at around 8:10 a.m. when the car ran into them. A 10-year-old girl apparently suffered a serious head injury.
