2 killed, 7 injured as race car goes out of control

Police say two people have been killed and seven injured after a race car went out of control on a rural Irish road and crashed into a crowd of about 30 spectators.



Dublin: Police say two people have been killed and seven injured after a race car went out of control on a rural Irish road and crashed into a crowd of about 30 spectators.

Monday`s accident highlighted the regular dangers posed to drivers and viewers alike by Ireland`s annual high-speed contests on hedge-lined, narrow country roads.

Organisers of the Cavan Stages Rally involving about 100 souped-up cars in the border county of Cavan canceled the event following the accident. Police and the race organizer, Motorsports Ireland, both launched investigations into what went wrong.

Police identified the two dead as a 29-year-old woman from Cork, southwest Ireland, and a 50-year-old male photographer from the western city of Galway. The car`s driver and co-driver were among the seven injured.
