Promoter: Race car hits 2 at Calif. raceway

  •  

MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Two people were struck by a race car during warm-up laps at a California raceway on Saturday, officials said.

A sprint car hit two people on pit row at Marysville Raceway Park some 40 miles north of Sacramento, said venue promoter Paul Hawes. He did not give the condition of the two people.

Hawes told the Marysville Appeal-Democrat that the car crashed during warm-up before the race and ran into pit row at high speed. The raceway was hosting the California Sprint Car Civil War Series on the opening day of its season.

Officials from the Yuba County Sheriff's Department and the Linda Fire Protection District said they were responding to the incident, but would give no details.

An outgoing message on the track's phone line said only that Saturday's race had been canceled.
