Freak ac­ci­dent.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

One per­son died and five peo­ple were in­jured late Fri­day in a freak road ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing a run­away tire on the Athens-Lamia na­tional high­way. The ac­ci­dent oc­curred in the area of Malakasa af­ter a 24year-old south­bound driver lost con­trol of his ve­hi­cle due to slip­pery con­di­tions, be­fore crash­ing into a me­dian bar­rier. The crash, which left the driver in­jured, caused one of his ve­hi­cle’s tires to come off, bounce across the di­vide and smash into the wind­shield of an on­com­ing tour bus. The bus driver also lost con­trol of his ve­hi­cle, which fell on its side, killing one pas­sen­ger and lightly in­jur­ing three.
