3 people killed at Scottish road rally

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) Police say three people were killed and six injured at a road rally in Scotland after two cars collided with spectators in separate accidents.

Organizers said the Jim Clark Rally in the Scottish Borders was canceled, and that they were cooperating with the police investigation to determine the cause of the crashes.

Police said the most serious crash took place at about 4 p.m. local time when a rally car came off the road near Kelso, hitting spectators. Three were pronounced dead at the scene and a fourth was in a critical condition in an Edinburgh hospital.

Two hours earlier, another rally car injured five people, one of which was in serious condition.

The rally was stopped immediately after the second incident.
