In the second accident, a 21-year-old from Ayia Napa is in serious but not critical condition after a taxi collided with his motorcycle, in the early hours of Tuesday.

According to the police, the 24-year-old taxi driver from Frenaros cut into the path of the motorcycle seriously injuring the 21-year-old driver at around 12.45am.
