    Malta - 28 hurt as Brit millionaire crashes Porsche into crowd

    Paul Bailey, a British millionaire and supercar collector, has injured 28 people when his car span out of control during a rally at a disused airport in Malta. Four people are reported to be critical, including a six-year-old girl.

    The vintage car, worth nearly a million dollars, is a Porsche Spyder and the same type of Porsche which proved ill-fated for movie star Jimmy Dean too. A photo of the rally appears to show unfixed crowd barriers which would be unlikely to offer much protection for the audience in the event of an accident.

    The Paqpaqli Ghall-Istrina event, where the accident happened, is an annual fundraiser organised by the Maltese government...President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca has said she is heartbroken and traumatised by the major incident.

    I can't believe organizers didn't have impact barriers there. That was just an accident waiting to happen, in my opinion. Those metal barriers went down like ninepins.
