The 2021 Targa Tasmania rally was struck by tragedy after a person was killed on the fifth day of the event, local media reported.
According to The Mercury, the crash occurred in the second half of Mount Arrowsmith, which was plagued by wet weather at the time of the incident.
« Police and ambulance services are still at the scene of a single vehicle crash on Lyell Highway near Double Barrel Creek, » the Facebook post said.
Targa Tasmania also gave few details in its official statement, saying only: « Targa Tasmania confirms that there has been a serious accident on Mt. Arrowsmith Stage and that the police have closed the road and are present. Further details will be provided published when they become available. »
However, Mozz’s Targa Tasmania’s Facebook page ‘inside line’, which has live commentary on the event, revealed more in an update on Friday afternoon.
« OK, official news channels are now covering the sad news. It seems like we lost one of our Targa family members in an unfortunate accident during the Arrowsmith phase, » the post said.
« I’m so sorry to deliver the bad news and try to find the right words to report it. It’s hard to beat me when you know your friends need a hug and you don’t for them they are there. »
It is the third fatality in the history of the event, the most recent occurring in 2013.
