Young brothers relive the moment rally car crashed into them and their dad
Young brothers Jack and Harrison Williams have told of the weekend rally car crash that put them and their father in hospital.
Jack, 13, and Harrison, ten, were watching races at the Regency Stages Rally at the Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, on Saturday with their dad, Lee, when a car skidded off the track and hit them.
A spectator who witnessed the incident described it as "like a ten-pin bowling ball – there were bodies flying everywhere".
Jack said: "It all happened so quickly. What I can remember is the car going really quick and the driver braking as hard as he could.
"When it brakes it goes up in the air a bit – and it went up in the air and I just remember my dad shouting my name and trying to pull us away."
Harrison said: "Dad cut all his head and went up on the bonnet of the Subaru and when he got up he was wondering where we were, he thought we were under the car.
"He got hit and landed ten metres away. He couldn't see us and all the marshals came up and shouted. When the car stopped I stood up straight away and then I fell."
Both boys, who live in Street, Somerset, were taken to hospital but have escaped the incident with only bruising to their legs.
Their dad was taken to hospital by air ambulance and treated for a head injury, which was also not considered to be serious.
Following the drama, which occurred during the second stage of the Regency Rally, the event continued.
Rally organiser, Weston-super-Mare Motor Club, has been unavailable to comment since the incident.
The Regency Rally's website says the event consists of ten Tarmac track stages on the roadways at the Bath and West Showground, as well as two further night-time stages.
The organisers said the event attracts the UK's leading rally drivers and offers "excellent spectator viewing".
A Mendip District Council spokeswoman said: "Mendip is aware of the motor rallying incident that occurred at the Royal Bath and West Showground over the weekend and is investigating."
