A serious accident happened in northern Hungary on Sunday. Four people died, and at least eight ended up in hospital when a racing car went off track and hit spectators at a rally.

According to police, the race car went off the road and drove among the people who were watching. Many ambulances and helicopters came to the place. One child and one more person ended up in hospital with very serious injuries while six more people suffered from slight injuries. Organizers stopped the race as a result of the accident.

Police don’t know the cause of the crash yet.

Difficult words: spectator (a person who watches an event), rally (a car race), cause (the reason why something happens).
