Woman killed in Scottish rally crash
Young boy also injured at race near Loch ness
A 50-year-old woman has died after a rally car flew off the track and into spectators at a race in Scotland.
An 8-year-old boy was also hurt at the Highland Car Club Snowman Rally in Glenurquhart Forest.
He has been taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, and his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.
Northern Constabulary said initial reports suggested a car left the track during stage one of the event and hit spectators.
Neither the driver or the co-driver of the vehicle was injured, and no other spectators were hurt.
The race, near Loch Ness, has been abandoned and emergency services are attending.
It is the opening round of the 2013 Scottish Rally Championship.
Dave Robson, chairman of the Scottish Rally Championship said: "The management committee, competitors and officials of the SRC extend their condolences to the families of those involved in today's incident on Special Stage One of the Snowman Rally.
"We offer our committed support to Highland Car Club and all those affected at this difficult time."
A statement from Highland Car Club said: "The club extends its sympathies to the families of those involved."
