Four people, including the 33-year-old mother and her 3-year-old child, were tragically killed in Greece today when the driver of the speeding Porsche crashed into their car at the rest area on the highway.
George Vakakis, 24-year-old son of Greek businessman and owner of the children’s toy retailer Jumbo, was killed when he lost control of his Porsche at high speed on the A1 Motorway, some 80 km outside of Athens. According to eyewitnesses, the road was wet at the time.
The German sports vehicle uncontrollably slid across the highway smashing into the Honda Civic of the 41-year-old father who had lawfully parked at the rest area and who at the time, was in a bathroom, while his wife and child were waiting in the car.
The force of this impact was so strong that the cars blew up in the massive ball of fire. The tragic father ran out of the restroom when he heard a crash and the explosion, but there was nothing he could do.
The fourth victim of this shocking incident was a passenger of the Porsche who has yet to be identified, but who police think was probably not wearing his seatbelt, and as he was thrown out of the car upon impact.
A nearby security camera captured this crash on video. The sight of the father running outside is just heartbreaking.
