A 29-year-old Nicosia man was killed on Monday after he apparently lost control of his dirt bike.
The accident happened at around 12pm on a road near the GSP stadium — Anexartisias Street — in the outskirts of Nicosia.
Police were still investigating the circumstances of the crash but it appeared that Michalis Iacovides 29-year-old from Strovolos had lost control of his motorcycle and fell.
The head of Nicosia traffic police, Stelios Panayides, said the man hit the pavement and a bollard. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Panayides said it “appears he was wearing a helmet.”
The police official said the motorcycle Iacovides was driving was not street legal and could only be used off road.
