Three of the spectators were taken by ambulance to hospital and one gentleman was taken by helicopter with serious injuries to his leg and pelvis area which were described as life-threatening.

The accident happened following a slight crest on a straight section of forest track where spectators lined both sides of the road.  One of the rally drivers left the track on this section of the road and on coming to a halt,  a number of the spectators went to offer assistance to get the rally driver back on the road.

Just minutes later another driver left the track at the same spot and collided with a number of the spectators.  The accident happened in the opening stages of the event and the rally was cancelled following the incident and police are now investigating what happened.
