Crash leaves mi­grants hurt

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A CAR car­ry­ing mi­grants who had crossed into Greece from Turkey crashed into another ve­hi­cle fol­low­ing a high-speed chase, leav­ing 13 peo­ple in­jured.

The car, with 12 peo­ple in­side, failed to stop for a check on the main road near the north­ern town of Kavala just af­ter mid­night. The en­su­ing po­lice chase ended in the city of Thessaloni­ki about 150 kilo­me­tres away, when the ve­hi­cle ran a series of red lights and crashed into a pass­ing car.

Ten men from Bangladesh and two men from Syria were taken to hospi­tal, as was the Greek driver of the other car.
