ATHENS -- One person died and five others were injured in the Aegean Sea when a migrant boat crashed into a Hellenic Coast Guard vessel during a pursuit, Greek authorities said on Saturday.

The incident occurred off the island of Symi Friday night, with 18 migrants being rescued and the driver arrested, according to a press release issued by the Coast Guard.

The migrants, whose nationalities were not identified, told the Greek authorities that they had each paid smugglers some 4,000 euros ($4,300) to be transported from Turkish shores to Greece, according to the press release.
