A 47-year old fuel truck driver was arrested on Tuesday night in connection with the death of pedestrian in Nicosia whom he apparently hit with his vehicle without noticing.
Police have yet to identify the woman who was hit and killed on the spot at the intersection of Acropolis Avenue and Panayiotis Kaspi Street
Reports said the woman was crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing.
The driver, who did not stop, claimed he did not notice hitting the woman and only found out about it when he stopped at a petrol station just up the road to unload fuel.
The nature of her injuries and the fact she was not carrying any identification papers have so far made it impossible for police to identify her.
