Killed on highway

A 68-YEAR-OLD man was killed on Friday night after he was hit by a car on the Nicosia-Limassol highway, a police report said.

The man, Yiorgos Papandreou, had been driving his pick-up truck on the highway when, at around 5:30 pm, he realised that three of the scaffolding boards he had been carrying had fallen onto the road.

He then parked his truck on the hard shoulder and got out to collect the boards, but was struck by a car driven by a 56-year-old woman under circumstances still under investigation.

An ambulance rushed Papandreou to the Nicosia General, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Nicosia traffic police continue to investigate the causes of the accident.
