Authorities in northern Greece have reported a car crammed with migrants that was driven by a suspected member of a smuggling ring has crashed during a police chase, injuring all eight occupants.

Police said the accident occurred early on Tuesday at the entry to the northern town of Xanthi. Police had tried to stop the car on a highway running from the Turkish border to the city of Thessaloniki, but the driver turned off onto a smaller road and tried to escape.

The migrants were identified as Pakistani, Afghan, Eritrean and Somali nationals, while the driver was a Pakistani. All were taken to hospital for treatment.

The suspected smuggler is believed to have picked up his passengers close to Greece’s northeastern land border with Turkey, a major gateway for illegal immigration.
