"BANGKOK (AP) — A car has rammed the fence of the landmark Erawan shrine in central Bangkok, injuring several people, in what police say was an accident and not a deliberate act.

The Erawan shrine was the site of a bomb attack in August last year that killed 20 people and more than 120 injured.

Police Lt. Gen. Sanit Mahathavorn, acting chief of the Bangkok metropolitan bureau, says the incident late Friday was caused by the driver who suffered a stroke and lost control.

The driver has been hospitalized.

The Bangkok Post daily says the injured include several tourists from Indonesia, Singapore and China."
