A fifth person was injured after a man drove into the crowd at an autocross event in Leende in Noord-Brabant last Sunday. A 50-year-old man from Kaatsheuvel collapsed on Monday evening, reports Omroep Brabant .

The man was hit on the head several times on Sunday with a helmet after he tried to remove the key from the contact of the racing car. The driver of that car drove into the audience after he had a fight with the organization about the competition money, according to the organization of the autocross event.

At first the man only suffered from headache. On Monday evening he collapsed at home, after which his wife called an ambulance. He was immediately taken to the hospital.

It is still unclear exactly what kind of injury the man has. It is already known that his little finger is broken. On Wednesday, he and his wife will report abuse.

Police are still investigating the case

Four Belgian victims were already killed at last Sunday's autocross event. Three of them are still in the hospital. The fourth victim, a fourteen-year-old boy, was allowed to go home on Sunday.

The police are still fully investigating. They cannot yet confirm the situation outlined by the organization. At the moment they are still talking to eyewitnesses.

The driver and his co-driver are still stuck in the coming days. This is a 21-year-old man from Reuver and a 17-year-old girl from Veghel. The pair are currently suspected of attempting murder or manslaughter.
