Mini Cooper Crashes Into Crowd at Australian Race
Two spectators and a driver were hurt -- but no one was killed -- when a Mini Cooper rolled several times and flipped into the crowd at a race in Ipswitch, Australia.
The driver, a 23-year-old Australian named Kain Magro, lost control, skidded and rolled before his car eventually flipped over a chain-link fence and landed in an area where dozens of spectators were standing. Amazingly, Magro's injuries were described as minor and the spectators are expected to be OK.
Australia's Queensland Times reported that race organizers don't plan to use the Queensland Raceway track again until improvements for both driver and general public safety can be made.
