New road fatality in Athienou

A 61 year-old man was killed last night shortly after midnight in a road collision on the Koshi-Athienou road. 

Andreas Kouzapas from Athienou appears to have collided with a car that had stopped on the left hand side of the road due to engine trouble. He then lost control of the vehicle which crashed on the guardrail, then on a tree and was immobilised.

The man was cut loose from the vehicle by the fire service and taken by ambulance to Larnaca General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The 28 year-old owner of the other car was outside his vehicle at the time of the collision. He was also taken to hospital for a check-up and was released shortly after.   

Nicosia police’s traffic department are investigating the incident.
