Carlos Sainz crash during Dakar 2017
On Thursday 5 January 2017, at the 4th stage of the Dakar 2017 between San Salvador de Jujuy, Argentina and Tupiza, Bolivia, Spanish driver Carlos Sainz and co-driver Lucas Cruz made a spectacular runway aboard their Peugeot 3008 DKR. While they were 5 kilometers from the finish, the car left in barrels at the end of a turn before tipping into a ravine. Also, two spectators who were at the edge of the track were almost mowed by the vehicle but managed to avoid the Peugeot narrowly. The crew was not injured and was even able to reach the bivouac, but the extent of the damage forced it to abandon.
