Six people were killed and several others sustained serious injuries when a race car lost control during a rally in Spain and crashed into onlookers.

Police officials said that two persons were in serious condition in the hospital and 11 others were receiving treatment for minor injuries.

A police spokesperson said four of the dead were female, including a pregnant woman and a 13-year-old.

A woman and a young girl were badly injured and were in an A Coruna hospital. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy tweeted his condolences and said the Coruna Rally had been left in mourning. He wished those injured "a speedy and complete recovery."

Police were investigating the causes of the accident, the spokesperson said. She spoke on condition of anonymity, following police rules.
