The fantastic first victory of Antoine Méo during the Dakar 2016 was unfortunately tarnished by the fatal accident between a car – the Mitsubishi n ° 409 driven by the French Lionel Baud – and a 63-year-old spectator, who was standing a priori in the middle of the track.

Dakar 2016 – stage 7: death of a spectator, hit by a car

 

 

 

The fantastic first victory of Antoine Méo at the 7th stage of the Dakar 2016 was unfortunately tarnished by the fatal accident between a car – the Mitsubishi n ° 409 driven by the French Lionel Baud – and a 63-year-old spectator, who was standing a priori in the middle of the track. This drama is added to the incident that occurred in a straight line from the prologue, when a car competitor injured several people, three of them seriously..

 

This fatal collision took place at km 82 of this special drawn up between Uyni (Bolivia) and Salta (Argentina): the spectator "was isolated on the track", announces the organizer ASO before explaining that his medical service "n ‘unfortunately only noticed the death of the accident victim.
