Spectators hit in rally car collision
Sunday 15 April 2012
A spectator was in a "life-threatening" condition last night, after being hit by a rally car, according to Grampian Police.
The man, thought to be in his fifties, was airlifted to hospital after the car left a forest track and collided with four male spectators during the Granite City Rally in Durris Forest, near Aberdeen yesterday. The man sustained "life-threatening" injuries to his leg and pelvis, the police said.
The condition of the other three men, who were taken to hospital by ambulance, is not thought to be serious.
The accident happened after a rally car had come off the track, and spectators had gathered to assist in getting it back on the road. A second car then left the track in the same spot, the club said in a statement.
