WRC Rallye Deutschland: Lefebvre and Moreau injury details confirmed

Stephane Lefebvre and co-driver Gabin Moreau sustain fractures and internal injuries in their Rallye Deutschland accident, injuries not said to be life threatening
Stephane Lefebvre and co-driver Gabin Moreau both sustained fractures and internal injuries following their crash in SS10 of Rallye Deutschland.

A second statement released by the organisers of the event this afternoon reads:

“The driver and co-driver of car number 10 were taken to hospital and examined after their accident in SS10.

“The examinations revealed fractures and internal injuries, so they will need to stay for residential treatment.

“According to the doctors, their injuries are not life threatening.”

A subsequent statement published on Lefebvre's official Facebook page adds:

“Both [Stephane and Gabin] remained conscious [after the crash] and were transported to hospital for examination. Tests revealed several fractures. Gabin was operated on this afternoon to reduce the fracture to his left ankle.

“With their families at their side, Stephane and Gabin wish to thank the rescue teams for their actions, as well as the crews and fans who showed their support.”

Lefebvre had been running sixth overall until he crashed his privately entered Citroen DS 3 WRC around 12.4 km into the long 40.80km Panzerplatte Lang 1 test.

The stage was stopped as a result and the medical team was then deployed before Lefebvre and Moreau were taken to hospital.
