Video: Dakar Rally entry almost hits spectator

In a bizarre incident, Yazeed Al-Rajhi was shocked when a spectator suddenly drove at him in a pickup truck in the fourth stage of the Dakar Rally 2024.

There was a close call for the Dakar car leader Yazeed Al-Rajhi during the Dakar Rally as he had to avoid a crash during the fourth stage of the event.

The potential crash was not with a fellow competitor, but rather with a spectator driving a pick-up truck. At considerable speed, the two cars narrowly missed each other.

Afterwards, the driver himself appealed to local fans to watch out and take care while navigating across the course.

He pointed to the spectator who was seriously injured earlier this week and a spectator who was killed in 2016 after a collision.

Watch footage of the incident below.
