HAIL – French driver Philippe Butron seriously injured his leg in a serious accident at the front of the Dakar Rally on Saturday and had to undergo surgery in Saudi Arabia. According to the organizers of the prestigious event, he will move to his homeland as soon as possible.

According to AFP, the Frenchman’s car exploded, which was not an accident in the competition itself. Five other people in the car escaped the accident without injuries. According to race director David Castera, Butron, who is also president of the three-league French Ligue 1 club Orleans, intends to finish the ninth Dakar Rally. The blast was immediately investigated by local police, but said it was not a criminal offence.
