安妮塔不幸离世_最新英语新闻

An eight-year-old girl has died after crashing her junior drag racing car on a track in Western Australia.

西澳一八岁小女孩在中级直线加速赛车中撞上赛道边缘,不幸身亡。

Anita Board was on a solo "test run" when her vehicle hit a concrete barrier at the Perth Motorplex, police said.

警察称,安妮塔.波德在珀斯个人试跑时撞上了路边混凝土屏障。

Paramedics treated her at the scene on Saturday before taking her to hospital, where she died a day later.

周六医务人员当场进行了救治,随后立即送往医院,但救治无效,一天后在医院去世。

The girl had been attempting to gain her licence for junior dragster racing, the Australia National Drag Racing Association (Andra) said.

澳大利亚加速赛车协会称,安妮塔正在申请拿到飚车许可证。

She had just turned eight - the minimum age required to race under official rules - and was driving a 210cc dragster, local media reported.

她才刚刚八岁,达到官方规定可以参赛的最低年龄。当地媒体报道,她当时开的是210CC高速赛车。

As a result of the accident, Western Australia has now suspended junior racing at the Perth Motorplex, the state’s only drag racing arena.

事故后,西澳洲暂停了在首府珀斯Motorplex的赛事,这是西澳洲唯一的赛车场地。

A statement from Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said: "The suspension of this category of motorsport activity allows for a full investigation to be carried out into the nature of the accident.

文体部部长密克(Mick)说:“暂停比赛是为了更好地调查事故原因”。

"The State Government will wait until the details of the accident are clear following the investigation before taking any further action".

“州政府会等具体事故报告出来以后再采取下一步措施”。

Mr Murray told reporters that he was unaware that children as young as Anita Board could take part in drag racing.

密克说他没有想到像安妮塔这么小的孩子已经可以参加比赛了。

"I was very surprised... but in saying that, from my understanding, it was well controlled but an unfortunate accident," he said.

“我真的非常惊讶,不过在我看来,赛事非常有组织,这只不过是一场意外事故”。

The girl’s father, Ian Board, posted a message online saying "my heart [is] in a million pieces".

安妮塔的父亲在网上说“简直心如刀割”。

Members of the drag racing community have posted tributes online, including under the hashtag #HelmetsOutForAnita.

赛车圈里其他人也在网上发起了话题#为安妮塔致敬#,以表达对她的悼念。
