The driver lost control of his car while speeding around a bend before careering through a fence and into the audience at around 3.30pm.

One witness told Krone: “Suddenly we heard screams, people looking for help ran towards us.”

At least ten people have been injured, including a child and two who are seriously hurt in the smash on Saturday.

Andreas Foditsch, commander of FF Patergassen, said: “Everyone is in shock.”

Those seriously injured were airlifted to hospital and the rest of the event was cancelled.

The driver of the car – a Toyota – was uninjured.

It comes after 15 people died in Turkey after a bus smashed into an ambulance dealing with another incident.

Three firefighters, two paramedics and two journalists are among those killed on the highway between Gaziantep and Nizip.

Horror pictures from the scene show debris strewn across the road with dozens of panicked people surrounding the smashed vehicles.

Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu confirmed the deaths, and added that the other eight fatalities were bus passengers.
