MADRID (AP) Emergency services on the Spanish island of Mallorca say four spectators were seriously injured when a rally car slammed sideways into them during a race.

Mallorca's urgent care service says one of the injured lost a foot and another suffered spinal cord injuries. Both were receiving care Sunday in Palma's Son Espases hospital while two others, one with bone fractures in a leg, were taken to Palma's Juaneda Clinic.

The accident happened Saturday and organizer Rallysprint Aficio de Calvia said on its Twitter account it wished ''those injured a speedy recovery.'' A black bow appears on the island's Mallorca Rallye website.

News agency Europa Press reported a safety officer had warned spectators to leave the corner where the accident happened but they returned once he had left.
