Car chase ends in migrant’s death

By: J.S., STA

A car chase ended in a car crash and a death in Ljubljana on Sunday evening as a van transporting six Turkish migrants crashed in the centre of the city, killing one of the passengers.

Ljubljana police identified the victim as a 22-year-old Turkish national. Police tried to pull over the van on the A1 motorway near Kozina, but the driver refused to stop and the chase continued on the Ljubljana bypass and Tržaška Street before he crashed into a traffic light. The 18-year-old driver, a Kosovo citizen, was detained along with three fellow Postojna residents who allegedly served as a reconnaissance party.
