A British businessman was among more than 20 people injured when he lost control of a Porsche sports car and ploughed into spectators at a motor show in Malta.
Paul Bailey's car spun off an airport taxiway as a rear wheel hit the grass.
A six-year-old girl and four other spectators were critically hurt in the crash at Paqpaqli.
Four of the five were in intensive care on Monday and their lives were still in danger, a hospital official said.
The girl's condition had improved slightly, according to reports.
Maltese government health spokesman Chris Fearne said 13 others were still in hospital, most of them with head and chest fractures, the Times of Malta reported.
Mr Bailey, a self-made millionaire from Rutland in the East Midlands, was among those still being treated for a head injury. Minutes before the crash he was interviewed alongside some of the cars he had brought for the event in aid of a Maltese charity.
Maltese TV broadcast video footage of the accident showing how his white Porsche 918 Spyder hit the grass on one side of the taxiway and careered across the road at high speed, through a makeshift barrier and into the crowd.
"I saw people thrown in the air, children on the ground, and women crying and screaming," Romanian photographer Christian Nicodimescu told Malta's TVM.
Organisers immediately cancelled the rest of the event, which had been opened by President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.
She had earlier gone for a ride in the Porsche and spoke of her shock and sadness at what had happened.
