Three migrant children were among five people killed Friday when a smuggler's car crashed on a northern Greek highway, police said.

Sixteen migrants were on board the jeep that crashed near the town of Nea Karvali early in the morning.

The dead included the car's driver, who was the smuggler, according to police.

Pictures showed the vehicle apparently vaulted over a highway cement barrier and hit a rock wall.

Police said they were not in pursuit at the time.
