  7. "Briton reported for accident near Struga gets 30-day temporary

    Ohrid/Struga /03/05/ 16:00

    An investigative judge of Struga Court ordered 30 days of temporary detention to the British citizen Nicholas Morley, Makfax's correspondent reported.

    Morley has been detained for the purposes of the investigation into yesterday's traffic accident that took place at Struga-Qafasan road, which left one Macedonian citizen dead. The victim's wife, who has suffered heavy injuries in the accident, is in critical condition.

    The tragic traffic accident occurred on the Struga-Qafasan road near KMR Petrol station. The speeding Porsche, driven by the Briton, crossed over the center lane and crashed into Golf with Ohrid registration plates.

    Immediately after the collision, Morley tried to escape into Albania with a BMW, but the
    Police stopped them at Qafasan border crossing after receiving a tip from a witness of the accident. Another UK citizen, identified as Matthew Convell, was aboard a Porsche along with Morley.

    In a statement given to Macedonian electronic media, spokesman of the Interior Ministry Ivo Kotevski said that a thorough probe into the case is necessary in order to establish the responsibility of the two Britons.

    The Police filed a formal accusation against Morley for "heavy violation of traffic safety" and "failure to provide help to an injured person".

    The two British citizens were participating in the international car relly Gumball 3000. They entered Macedonia yesterday and were heading to Albania.

    The international contest is organized by personalities of the world jet set."

  8. Issued by Maximillion Cooper on behalf of The Gumball 3000 Rally - 22.30 CET / 03 May 2007

    Following our earlier release reporting yesterday�s accident - As a sign of respect we have decided that this year�s Gumball 3000 Rally will not travel any further and will end in Bratislava this evening, May 3rd 2007.

    As the organisers of the rally we feel that it should be stopped as a mark of respect to Vladimir Cepulyoski who died today after an accident involving one the participating drivers.

    We are very saddened by what has happened and feel that it would be wrong to continue. On behalf of Gumball 3000, we once again extend our deepest sympathies to his family and we are doing everything we can for them.

    This is the first time anything like this has happened in 9 years of travelling through over 40 countries with 1000�s of drivers and it is with deep regret that I make this announcement.

    Gumball crash driver tried to flee in private jet

    By Bojan Pancevski in Vienna and Colin Freeman, Sunday Telegraph
    Last Updated: 12:43am BST 07/05/2007

    The British Gumball Rally 3000 driver arrested in Macedonia over a fatal car crash was caught trying to flee the country in a private jet, police have revealed.

    Nick Morley, 30, who is facing possible criminal action after a high-speed collision that killed a local couple, was detained at Skopje Airport on Friday just hours after a judge had granted him bail. He is said to have called the jet in from London on a mobile.

    Morley has been transferred back to the remand prison where he was held after being arrested and interviewed following the accident on Wednesday.

    Interior Ministry spokesman Ivo Kotevski told the The Sunday Telegraph yesterday: "The court revoked its original decision and granted Mr Nick Morley bail late yesterday. He was even given his passport back as a sign of good will. But within hours, Mr Morley ordered a private jet to pick him up from Skopje.

    "While trying to board at 10pm on Friday, Mr Morley was recognised by the border officer. It is astonishing that Mr Morley attempted to leave the country. He has got competent legal representation and the authorities have made sure his rights were guaranteed."

    The brother of a wealthy property developer, Morley was behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 when it collided with a Volkswagen Golf near Struga close to the Macedonian border with Albania, killing the driver Vladimir Chepunjoski, 67, and his wife Margarita.

    Morley, from Bowden, Cheshire, and co-driver Matthew McConville, 36, from Prestwich, Greater Manchester, are alleged to have left the scene, although their lawyers say they waited for ambulance crews and reported the crash to police.

    Border guards stopped them shortly afterwards, however, as they tried to cross into Albania in another contestant's car.

    Mr Chepunjoski died on the way to hospital from severe head injuries, while his wife died on Friday night in Skopje. The rally was called off after the incident.
  19. they do, as long as they don't conflict with current sponsorship
  20. the accident was bound to happen 1 day. just hope they keep the event going. Everyone knows the risks
  21. The people that enter the rally know the risk, but it was 2 innocent bystanders that died. On top of that the people in the event that caused the deaths are accused of trying to flee the country. Events like that can cause resistance from countries not wanting future rallies in their borders.
  22. I'd love to do the Gumball 3000 in a Flying Spur with 3 friends.
