A very nasty hit by a Renault Clio on a Photoghrapher. No confirmation that's fatal.
Never seen this one before. Really distressing. MAJOR WARNINGS APPLY
I can not find a matching case at mm.org

Are they speaking Russian? @Sedre

The original video description at YouTube says so.
It also says that the girl that was hit survived with a broken leg.

It's indeed russian.

Yes, it's Russian. Spectators ask girl to leave away from track in beginning of video.

Accident happened few days before 18 February 2009 but currently I don't find which rally it was. And what is she holding isn't camera. It's beer can.

This is in the description to the motocross crash where the guy goes off the track and hits people.



It's not in mmorg.

The nasty stunt jump accident was posted on youtube on 31 May 2015:



Speaker talks in Portugese, so perhaps a Brazilian accident?

For sure it's a brazilian crash, a thing like this will make so much noise here in Europe...

I don't find any 1950-1960s Champ-car/sprint-car fatalities with #47 in my database, so maybe, it wasn't fatal.

Don't know, i tend to trust the old TBK.Fameflame videos. But if you don't find anything for sure it looks like it isn't fatal.

I have removed the original topic where we discussed this, at some length. We never really concluded anything, IIRC. It's still in our recycle bin, and I'll go through it again, and see if there's anything slightly useful in there. I have given up on solving it, but am confident it was not a fatal accident.

This one i think it's fatal, but i have no confirmation.
Non-fatal accident of Lorenzo Carbonell during 1988 Puigmajor hillclimb (accidently found in description of fatality in MM.org).

Take that, @hollie3sa
I'll take it :-D
Coincidentally found this on facebook:

As i said before, a few things that are obscure/i didn't have any luck to identify.



From 1.31 until the end of the video, you can see a tractor climbing the hill and then flipping over. The title of the video implies that was tragic enough to stop the races, but i didn't find any confirmation. According to description, it was a motocross event in Leeds from 1931.




0.40 end of the video. This one it's a very famous crash, which for many years i've tried to identify without any success. Now we have more information. Happened in Los Angeles, presumably before january 1934, date of the release of the newsreel.



No information. Video appeared in 2018 and it's coming for sure from south america. It looks really bad for one guy.



This one it's coming from the Carrera de Carchacas, that category which is popular in south america. In the description it says that no one was killed, however in another video the description stated that someone died. Didn't find any articles about this, so i'm asking for help.



another video from the same category. It clearly says that one spectator died, but i don't understand if he died in the crash depicted in the video or in another one.



No info. Video from last year and the championship should be a local championship in Bolivia, from (if i understood correctly) the Santa Cruz region.



no info as well, video from 2017. Video should be from Ecuador.



video from around 2009/2010, happened in Brasil.
Taken from the fatal crashes archive. Plus, two more videos that needs identification

https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=CZ53k_1570437166

Happened in Cherkasy, Ukraine in 2019. Description doesn't say anything on the fate of the spectator.

https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=9d9_1494916727

This one for sure it's fatal, happened in 2016 but didn't find any news on the rider.
