13 October, 12:07

(ANSA-AFP) - FRANKFURT AM MAIN, OCT 13 - Seven people died and several others were injured early Friday in a crash in southeastern Germany after a minibus believed to be packed with migrants tried to evade a road check, police said. A Mercedes Vito minibus with Austrian license plates and carrying 23 people tried to evade the check some 50 kilometres (31 miles) from the border between Austria and Germany as it drove toward Munich, police said. The driver lost control of the vehicle, which flipped over several times before landing on its side. Police said they suspect a "people smuggler" was at the wheel and have opened a criminal investigation of the crash in the Bavaria region on charges of suspected homicide. Some of those injured were in a serious condition, with children among the victims.
