Three injured in Limassol crash

THREE PEOPLE were injured in a car crash at around 2am on Saturday in Limassol, a police report said.

One was a 27-year-old man, whose alcohol levels were tested twice, showing 29 milligrams and 27 milligrams, was over the legal drink-driving limit.

Limassol accidents department head Emilios Kafas said that witness reports indicate that the man “showed gross and criminal negligence”, as he ran a red light and hit a car driven by a 23-year-old woman – also carrying a 26-year-old woman – at the junction between Spyros Kyprianou and Andreas Araouzos avenue.

The collision caused the two women’s car to overturn, while the man’s car hit a metal lamp post before coming to a halt.

The two women were trapped in the car until the fire brigade was able to free them. They were transferred to Limassol General where the 23-year-old’s condition was identified as critical, and she was transferred to Nicosia General.

Her co-passenger was also injured, but she remained at Limassol General as her condition was deemed non-critical.

The man, also transferred to Limassol General, sustained minor injuries and is under arrest.
