Spectator tumbles after Hayden Paddon crash

New Zealand rally driver Hayden Paddon has made a horror start to his 2017 World Rally Championship campaign - crashing on the opening stage of the first event of the year in Monte Carlo and injuring a spectator.

As you can see in the video below, a spectator appears to have been hit in the incident. The auto didn't appear too damaged and in normal circumstances they would have tried to get the vehicle back on its wheels and attempt to continue.

Details are scarce, but his Hyundai Motorsport team has confirmed he and co-driver John Kennard are out of the vehicle and okay.

The spectator appears to tumble down the hill on impact at the Monte Carlo Rally.

We will update this post as soon as we hear about the spectator's status.

The 2017 Rallye Monte Carlo gets underway on Thursday 19th January with SS1 and SS2 starting at 20:14 local time.

Edit [4:03 p.m.]: Originally, we noted a spectator tumbling down the hill after the collision, but a broadcast still posted to Twitter (warning: graphic) appears to show the person being struck by Paddon's auto.
