SIX people have been killed after a rally car spun out of control during a rally in Galicia, northern Spain.
The car slammed into a group of twenty spectators at the A Coruna Rally killing four women, one of whom was pregnant, and two men.
A Guardia Civil spokesman said, “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.”
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy tweeted: “The La Coruna Rally is in mourning.
“My deepest condolences to the bereaved and wishes for a complete recovery of those injured.”
