Four men injured as rally car loses control and veers into spectators

Their injuries are said to be serious but not life-threatening.

FOUR MEN WERE injured earlier today when a car taking part in a rally in Meath struck a number of spectators.

The incident occurred in the Bohermeen area just before 4pm. It is understood the car lost control at a bend and veered into a field, hitting spectators who were standing by the side of the road.

In a statement this evening, the ALMC motor club, which organised the rally, said two spectators and two fellow competitors were injured. All of the injured were men.

One was airlifted to Beaumont Hospital, one was taken to Blanchardstown Hospital and the other two were brought to Drogheda for treatment. All four are said to be seriously injured, though ALMC said their injuries are not “immediately life-threatening”.
