Probe launched into deadly accident that left two dead on Crete


A magistrate on Crete Friday gave a 20-year-old motorist who killed two pedestrians on Thursday when he hit them with his car an extension until Monday to prepare his defense.

The Georgian national hit a 20-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man while they were walking along a road near the Technical University of Crete in Hania.

After the incident, the university issued a statement calling for the streets near the school to be made safer for pedestrians.
