The head of the Russian team “KAMAZ-master” Vladimir Chagin commented on the incident with participation of Andrey Karginov’s crew on the rally-marathon “Dakar”. His words are on the team website.
According to Chagin, the viewer, stumbling on the sand, was on the trajectory of the truck. “Andrew didn’t see it. Because it was the rise — see only the sky and part of the mount to the windshield. About the incident he learned only upon arrival at the camp,” said head.
The head of “KAMAZ-master” added that he was surprised by the decision on the disqualification of the crew. “But the decision cannot appeal. Forced to accept it and continue the race three crews,” said Chagin.
Earlier it became known that the crew Karginov ran over spectators during the rally-marathon. After the incident, “KAMAZ-master” continues the race and gave no assistance to the victim. As a result the man received a fracture of the femur.
