    We're on Chile/Argentina time now, 2 hours earlier:

    (Google translation)

    A serious accident involving a vehicle in support of the Dakar Rally left two dead and seven wounded late on Wednesday (9) in Peru, 10 kilometers from the border with Chile.

    A taxi carrying six people crashed in the front support vehicle, carrying three people. A second taxi with four passengers, flipped several times in an attempt to avoid the collision.Two of the first taxi passengers, including the driver, died in the accident and seven other people - four Peruvians and three passengers in the vehicle support - were injured and were taken to hospitals in Tacna, Peru.

    The Peruvian authorities coordinated the rescue operation, which involved three local ambulances, a fire engine and several police officers, with the support of the Dakar team, which sent two ambulances and two security vehicles to the site.*The Peruvian authorities have started investigations into the causes of the accident.

    The accident reported earlier involved a Race2Recovery assistance vehicle:

    Race2Recovery ·

    THREE British members of the Race2Recovery team competing in the Dakar Rally in South America have been badly injured in a road traffic accident, it was confirmed early today. (Thursday)

    Their vehicle, a Land Rover Defender (a team support vehicle not a race car) was involved in a head-on collision while travelling in convoy on Day 5 of the challenge with other support vehicles in the town of Tacna, in Peru near the Chilean border.

    The three Race2Recovery members are Justin Birchall, 40, a team driver and civilian volunteer from Burnley, Lancashire, whose Wildcat vehicle retired earlier in the race; former Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineer and Gulf War and Falklands war veteran Lee Townsend, a team mechanic, from Yate near Bristol; and retired Army Major John Winskill, aged 42, the team logistics expert from Durrington, near Salisbury, Wilts.

    It is understood that two other vehicles were involved in the accident and two people received fatal injuries and others were injured. Team leader Captain Tony Harris said: &#8220;Our hearts go out to the families and relatives of those who have died in this tragic accident and we offer them our condolences and sympathy. Our entire team has been struck by the friendliness and support we have received from the Peruvian people since arriving for the Dakar Rally.&#8221;
    Captain Harris said that the Team had unanimously agreed to continue the challenge with the two remaining Wildcat vehicles.

    The three injured R2R team members were transferred to a local hospital and later flown from Tacna by an Antonov aircraft to hospital in Lima where they are said to be &#8216;stable and conscious.&#8221; Their injuries were described as &#8220;non-life-threatening.&#8221; Their families have been informed of the accident by other team members.
    &#8220;This is obviously a huge shock but we know that we have the blessing of the injured. They want the team to finish,&#8221; Tony said.
    The accident is being investigated by the local police in Peru and the team is being supported by the race organisers.
