Police shelve Barum Rally case

Police have shelved their investigation into a tragic crash in last year’s Barum Rally which claimed one life and left one person injured. According to investigators, no crime was committed: no mistake was uncovered on the part of organisers, who had sections properly marked off. The tragedy happened during the race last September when a Subaru Impreza driven by the team of Václav Kopáček and Tomáš Singer flew off the road at 160 kilometres per hour. The man killed was 54-years-old. Police are continuing to investigate another rally race in November where four bystanders died.
