Two others injured in accident involving a Republican Guard motorcyclist
A spectator was killed Saturday and two others injured in an accident involving a motorcyclist of the Republican Guard on the 14th stage of Tour de France between Colmar and Besançon. The victim, a 61-year-old woman, died in the hospital at Besançon.
"A woman crossed the road and was hit by a Republican Guardsman on a motorcycle," Alain Etienne, a spokesman for the gendarmerie, told Reuters. "Then the motorcycle slid and hit one or two more people."
Two injured spectators, a 37-year-old woman and a 60 year-old-man, were transported by helicopter to a hospital in Mulhouse, according to AFP.
The accident occurred in Wittelsheim, 38 kilometres after the start of the stage.
