First Richard, nor Colin. Man these top drivers are having some bad times. My condolences to the McRae family. Rest in peace Colin, you were among the best, always.

Shockking!
It is indeed a sad news and a very bad one. RIP Mcrae!

Saw the title and was relieved to read that he was not on board. But, it was bad news waiting inside. Our prayers are always with him. He was one driver and he gave everything to his driving. We are really going to miss him.

"It has now been confirmed that there were four people, two adults and two young children on board," the police said in a statement.
"Although a post mortem has still to take place, the four involved are believed to be Mr Colin McRae (39) of Jerviswood House and his son Johnny Gavin McRae, aged 5; Ben Porcelli (6), of Cleghorn Road, Lanark, who had been over playing with Johnny; and family friend Graeme Duncan (37), of L'Ile Degaillot, Faycelles, France.
