A human skeleton was found inside a car at the bottom of a gorge on Thursday when a motorist on the Kalamata-Sparta highway in the southern Peloponnese spotted the vehicle at a depth of no less than 150 metres.

Apparently, the German license-platted car had veered off the gorge several months ago. A driver’s license found on the victim belongs to a 56-year-old German national.

An investigation is underway to identify the victim and determine the causes of the accident.
