    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - One driver was killed and another injured when their rally car veered off a road and landed on its roof during an event Sunday.
    The accident happened in Haellefors, nearly 100 miles from Stockholm, during the one of the first sections.

    Their identities were not released.

    A videotape showed the car hitting a tree, police spokesman Goeran Gunnarsson said. He told the Swedish news agency TT there would be an investigation.

    The event was canceled.
