A spectator at the Tour de France who caused a massive crash involving dozens of cyclists is missing as race authorities plan to sue her.

Tour de France deputy director Pierre-Yves Thouault told the AFP news agency they plan to sue the woman "so that the tiny minority of people who do this don't spoil the show for everyone.
