A car carrying suspected migrants from Syria crashed in northern Greece on Monday, police said, injuring all 14 people in the vehicle that is believed to have crossed the Turkish border in secret.

Police said the car had been travelling along an old highway in northern Greece toward the country’s second-largest city of Thessaloniki around 2am when it failed to stop for a police check.

The car’s driver then lost control of the vehicle and crashed.

Greek police said all the passengers were from Syria. The group was made up of 11 men, one woman and two teenage children.

Eight people, including the teenagers, were treated for their injuries in a hospital and released.

The other six remained hospitalised, including a 22-year-old man believed to have been the driver.

Thousands of migrants and refugees still arrive in Greece from neighbouring Turkey each year.

Since January 15, more than 1,000 migrants have been recorded entering Greece, according to data from the UN migration agency.

Most come by sea to the nearby Greek islands but others use the land border, wading, swimming or rowing across the river that divides Turkey and Greece.

They then pack into smugglers’ cars and head to Greek cities.
