Authorities in theU.S. state of California say at least eight people were killed when an off-road vehicle lost control during a race in the Southern Californian desert.
A spokeswoman for the sheriff of San Bernardino County said a vehicle from the race plowed into a crowd of spectators Saturday night. A dozen people were injured.
Witnesses say the vehicle hit people who were sitting on rocks. Two of the victims were decapitated.
The annual race attracts people from all over California.

Due to the enormous volume of information available most of the lists on the site are works in progress. They are great for seeing what information or products are available or what events have happened but the absence of information or a line item on a list should not be interpreted that something did not exist or did not happen. It probably just means we haven't gotten around to adding it yet.
