Leader Carlos Sainz abandons Dakar Rally

Dakar Rally leader Carlos Sainz has abandoned the race after his Volkswagen careened into a ravine. He was not believed to have been seriously injured.
The Dakar Rally's Web site says Sainz, a two-time world rally champion, and French co-pilot Michel Perin were taken by helicopter to Fiambala, where the 12th stage had begun.
The Web site says Perin may have injured his shoulder after the accident at the 79-kilometer (49-mile) mark of the 253-kilometer (157-mile) stage from Fiambala to La Rioja.
