The Porsche was driving at high speed, crossed over the center lane and crashed into the Volkswagen Golf near a KMR petrolstation. After the crash they tried to escape in a BMW but they were stopped by the police near Qafasan at the Macedonian-Albanian border crossing.

After the accident residents that were in the neighbourhood went to the crash site. The passengers of the Golf were transported to a hospital.
