COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Two race officials died Saturday after being hit by a rally car which came off the road in western Denmark.
Danish police said the car was driven by a 73-year-old male and 22-year-old female co-pilot.
The local victims — a 21-year-old woman and 22-year-old man — worked as rally officials and died shortly afterward, police said, without giving further details. The cause of the accident was being investigated.
The driver and co-driver were both taken to the hospital but have no life-threatening injuries.
Organizer Randers Auto Sport said on its Facebook page that the rest of the one-day race was canceled. The Ekstra Bladet tabloid said the race featuring about 60 cars was the 10th edition of a locally organized rally in Randers, some 210 kilometers (130 miles) northwest of Copenhagen.
