BREAKING: Malta Motorshow Crash. Many Injured.

At least 21 people have been injured after a car lost control and crashed into spectators at a motor show in Malta, officials say.

Three people – including a young child and the driver of the Porsche supercar – are in critical condition after the incident at the Paqpaqli event.

Some of the wounded were taken to hospital by helicopters.

Footage showed the car spanning out of control on the road at high speed and smashing into the crowd of spectators.

There were scenes of panic and chaos, and some in the crowd were heard shouting: “Oh, my God!” and “Ambulance!”

“The car was speeding down the taxiway when a back wheel went on the grass. The car spun out of control, went through the barriers where a large crowd was watching, and into the area of the static car exhibition,” an eyewitness told the Times of Malta.

“Many people were hit, there was chaos and screams,” the eyewitness added.

Event organisers said the incident would be investigated.
