    Dozens injured in motor show crash

    Dozens injured in motor show crash

    More than 20 people have been injured in a car crash at a motor show in Malta after a British driver ploughed his supercar into a crowd.

    A Porsche 918 Spyder, driven by British millionaire businessman Paul Bailey, reportedly clipped the grass verge, spun out of control and drove into a crowd of spectators at the event on October 4.

    A six-year-old girl is among four people in intensive care with serious injuries.

    Dozens hospitalised

    A total of 28 people were injured in the incident during the Paqpaqli ghal-Istrina motor show.

    Of these, 19 were treated at Mater Dei Hospital for head, chest and abdominal injuries as well as broken bones. Five of them were discharged not long after being admitted.

    Mr Bailey, a self-made millionaire from the East Midlands, is in a stable condition.

    Witnesses says the Porsche was driving at high speed along an unused airport taxiway when the accident happened. One of its back wheels went on the grass, causing it to spin and crash through barriers where a large crowd was watching.

    ‘Traumatised’

    Malta’s President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, who was hosting the motor show to raise money for charity is said to be “traumatised and devastated” by what has happened. The rest of the event was cancelled.

    A spokeswoman for the Office of the President confirmed an investigation is under way.

    Mr Bailey reportedly bought the limited edition Porsche Spyder for £780,000 in January this year.

    He has a collection of more than 30 supercars, including a £866,000 McLaren P1 and £1.2 million customised Ferrari.

    The businessman made his £28 million fortune when he sold a phone-conferencing firm in 2012.
