Spanish rider dies in Hispania Rally road accident

(Reuters) - Spanish motorcycle rider Alberto Martinez died in a road accident before Thursday’s third stage of the Hispania Rally, organisers said.

“As a result of the fatal outcome, Stage Three was cancelled,” they added in a statement on Friday.

El Mundo said the 42-year-old Basque collided with a car that had broken down on the road three km into a non-competitive section in the southern Spanish province of Granada.
