BARRE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont officials say two people were hurt when a race car hurtled over a retaining wall during a weekend qualifying race at Thunder Road.

Fans described a scary scene Sunday during the qualifying event for the 41st Labor Day Classic stock car race in Barre.

A witness told The Times Argus that one of the victims was knocked into The wall and the other was pinned under the car. Madison Urie told WCAX-TV it was “the worst thing I’ve seen in my entire life.”

Officials say both of the injured were track officials, one from Thunder Road and another from the American-Canadian tour. Officials said in a statement that both suffered leg injuries.

A medical helicopter transports one of the victims. Track officials postponed further racing after the crash.
