2 die in Denmark race after car hits spectators

AP  |  Copenhagen 

Two spectators died after being hit by a rally car which came off the road in a western street race.

In a statement today, Danish police said the car was driven by a 73-year-old male and 22-year-old female co-pilot.

The spectators died shortly afterward, police said, without giving further details.

The driver and co-driver were both taken to the hospital but have no life-threatening injuries.

The Ekstra Bladet tabloid said the rest of the one-day race featuring about 60 cars was cancelled. It was the 10th edition of a locally organised rally in Randers, some 210 kilometres northwest of Copenhagen.
