Three injured after driver four times over limit involved in collision

Three  women were seriously injured in Xylotympou early on  Wednesday evening after a  car driven by a woman four times over the limit was involved in a collision with another vehicle.

The accident occurred around 7.30 pm when a 25 year old driver lost control of her car, crossed into the opposite lane and crashed into another vehicle driven by a 28 year old woman.

Both women were seriously injured. The 50 year old mother of the driver of the second vehicle was also injured.
