Dramatic Police appeal to drivers after the fatal accident in Paphos

The Paphos Police attributes the deadly traffic collision with the victim to 25-year-old Victor Paraskevopoulos, according to the Spokesman of the Paphos Police Directorate and Head of the Paphos TAE Michalis Ioannou, addressing the incidents.

In statements to reporters today, Mr. Ioannou said that unfortunately this is another tragic case for which the human factor played an important role, adding that it is a pity that human lives are lost, especially young children.

According to Mr. Ioannou, yesterday around 20:30 at night, a 30-year-old foreign food distributor was driving his vehicle on Apostolou Pavlou Avenue in a northerly direction towards the center of Paphos.

In his attempt to turn right towards Niovis Street, he collided with a motorcycle coming from the opposite direction, driven by a 25-year-old expatriate.

From the collision, the motorcycle entered the opposite direction of traffic, and collided head-on with a vehicle driven by a 45-year-old expatriate. From the second collision, the 25-year-old was seriously injured and transported by ambulance to the Paphos General Hospital, where the doctor on duty confirmed his death. The scene, said Mr. Ioannou, was immediately blocked by the Police, sketched and photographed for examination purposes.

In addition, he noted, an alcohol test was performed on the 30-year-old driver and a drug test with a negative result. The driver of the motorcycle was wearing a helmet and the drivers of the vehicles involved were wearing seat belts.

The 30-year-old foreigner, as he said, was not injured in the accident while the 45-year-old driver of the second vehicle was slightly injured and transported by second ambulance to the Paphos General Hospital where he was kept for monitoring.

Shortly afterwards, the 30-year-old foreigner was arrested on a warrant and remanded in custody.

The case is being investigated by the Paphos Traffic Police.
