Six-car pileup on busy Athens road causes tailbacks

A crash on busy Kifissou Avenue in Athens early on Thursday morning led to a six-car pileup near the junction with Iera Odos but there were no reports of serious injuries.

Traffic police were seeking to determine the exact circumstances of the incident, which occurred amid heavy rainfall at around 7.30 a.m.

The pileup caused delays until the cars involved had been towed away, about two hours later.
