Rally car spins, rams into crowd of fans in Spain killing 6 (GRAPHIC)
Four women, one of whom was pregnant, and two men were killed in the terrible accident in Spain’s Galicia. At least 10 others, including four children, were injured – eight of them seriously.
“One of the drivers took the track at a much higher speed than he should have and he veered off a curve, slamming into around 20 people,” a Civil Guard spokesman said according to Reuters.
TV footage captured the moment that the Peugeot 206 XS went off-track and flipped over in a cloud of dust in an area where a group of group of fans had been standing.
The rally was immediately suspended as police and ambulance services rushed to help the victims. Neither the driver nor co-driver were injured, according to reports.
“My deepest condolences to the bereaved and wishes for a complete recovery of those injured,” Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy said on his official Twitter account.
