The Targa Florio road race around Sicily left the international calendar in the 1970s for being too dangerous, but it has made a comeback in recent years as a vintage and a rally event. Today, the race was canceled following a fatal crash between a father-daughter team and a course marshal.

The Mesina-Racing Mini Cooper JCW, running the Sicilian father-daughter team, slid off the road on a special stage of the Targa Florio today and hit one of the course marshals, as La Repubblica reports. The marshal and the driver, 53-year-old Mauro Amendolia, were killed instantly, while the driver’s daughter, 27-year-old Gemma Amendolia, the car’s navigator, was taken by helicopter to a hospital. She is in serious condition with a head injury. Normally Gemma races with her sister, but for the Targa her father took her place at the wheel.
