And if you look at Rovanperas accident site. Did you see anyone walking or spectating there? No, because it was not allowed. Why tents were there? have you been on that stage? It is mostly stones and not very smooth surface, spectators come there couple of days before, they can put their tents there but they are not there during the stage.
    There was report on Twitter that a young woman was in the car that was hit by Rovanperä. Happy ending though. So safety everywhere, can never be guaranteed, not even on every rally.

    Jonne Halttunen also confirmed there was a woman, aged 50-60, sleeping in the car which they crashed into. She was sitting on the back seat on the side where the roof collapsed the most. She was in a terrible shock and couldn't get out herself but not injured. There were no other spectators on that area.
