Tragic road accident claims four lives in the beach of Velipoje

Tirana, 2 August 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency

In Albania, four holiday makers lost their live in tragic circumstances this morning, after their car swerved off a road, which didn’t meet any normal standards.

The victims were four young people and among them were two Italians, IBNA reports.

They lived in Italy and had come to spend their holidays in the beach of Velipoje. While they were crossing the road segment that leads to Velipoje, they lost control of their vehicle.

As a result, the car left the road and ended up in a ditch.

The four passengers who were inside the BMW type vehicle could not survive and lost their life.

Unfortunately, roads in Albania, especially in tourist areas, are in miserable conditions.

Local and central government say that they are working to improve the situation, but it continues to be the same for years.

Every day, in the roads of Albania, citizens lose their life and many others are injured in accidents which are mainly caused due to roads meeting no standards, lack of road signs and difficult terrain. /balkaneu.com/
