Five dead in collision outside Arta
Five people have lost their lives, including a child, and four more were injured in a face-on collision of two vehicles, at around 4pm on Wednesday afternoon, 4 kilometers outside Arta.
The two vehicles collided at the 141st kilometer on the Antirio-Arta national high way, near Sykoula. There were two women and four children on the first car and two parents with their son on board the second.
