A British millionaire, Paul Bailey, has crashed his supercar into a crowd of people during a rally in Malta. 20 people have been left injured and five of them are in a critical condition.
Times of Malta and News.com.au report that Mr Bailey was driving his $1.62 million Porsche 918 Spyder when it clipped the grass, spun out of control, and crashed through a fence into nearby spectators.
Majority of people injured are suffering from fractures and cuts, but a six year-old girl is one of the five people in a critical condition.
Here is footage of the crash:
Plus another video of the aftermath and those left injured:
Mr Bailey owns 76 cars and brought four of them to the charity event in Malta.
I have no idea what his experience level is when it comes to driving these supercars at rallies, but the incident makes it seem like he was under-qualified to say the least.
Did he make a donation to the event that allowed him to drive? Not sure. Can’t find much information about this around at all. It’s dreadful though and I hope the five people in critical condition come out alive.
The barriers put up by event organisers are a disgrace too.
