Footage emerges of grisly aftermath of Dakar rally crash (VIDEO)
Ten people were injured in the incident, including a pregnant woman and four children. Doctors say three people have life-threatening injuries.
An earlier statement by the Dakar organizers said four people were injured. But doctor Daniel Modesto at the Santa Francisca de Arrecifes hospital told Argentina’s TN that 10 people were receiving treatment for injuries.
The Mini Cooper that veered off course was # 360 in the race, and belonged to Guo Meiling - the first Chinese woman to compete in the prestigious Dakar rally.
The current race was to determine Sunday’s running order.
