THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Greek authorities say eight migrants have been injured, two of them seriously, in a car crash on a highway in northern Greece.
Police said Thursday that a vehicle being driven by a 28-year-old Greek man crashed into a stationary car carrying eight men from Pakistan and Bangladesh. All nine involved in the accident near the northern city of Komotini were injured, and two of the migrants were in serious condition.
No smuggler was found, authorities said.
Hundreds of migrants and refugees cross the land border between Greece and Turkey each month. Many are then transported by smugglers, crammed into cars and trucks, to northern Greek towns and cities.
Last month, six migrants were killed and another 10 were injured when the jeep they were in crashed into an irrigation ditch.
