Fire­fight­ers re­cov­ered 11 bod­ies from the car, which had been trav­el­ling to­wards Thes­sa­loniki. The driver of the truck, which had been head­ing to­wards the town of Kavala, es­caped the fire un­scathed.

It had failed to stop ear­lier on Satur­day when po­lice of­fi­cers tried to pull it over for a check.
