Eight-year-old girl dies after being hit by racing car in Madeira rally

An eight year old girl died following an horrific accident during a rally in Madeira yesterday. The child was among a group of people who crossed the road after they believed all the cars in the race had passed. A BMW driven by a Portuguese pilot however was still to come. It hit the child ‘violently’, say all reports, projecting her some distance. Both presidents of Madeira and Portugal have lamented the tragedy.
