    [02] Easter-Procession-Accident

    14/04/2001 18:31:12

    Eight people were injured, three of them seriously, when a car skidded through a candlelit Easter procession in a village near the northern town of Serres, police said on Saturday.

    The three worshippers who sustained serious injuries, among them an eight-year-old boy and a 70-year-old pensioner, were taken to hospital for treatment. The remaining five casualties received first aid from a local medical centre.

    The driver of the car was identified as Athanasios Xefteris, a 20-year-old student.

    Xefteris apparently lost control of the vehicle, hitting one worshipper after another. The car crashed to a halt when it hit a concrete post.

    Police are investigating the causes of the accident.
