Father of three, elderly man killed in separate road accidents (updated)

A 54-year-old father of three was killed in Larnaca on Friday afternoon, the second person to die in a traffic accident in the district in just a few hours following the death of an elderly man.

Stelios Stratis, a car mechanic from Pervolia, was driving on the Ayia Anna to Kalo Horio road when his pick-up veered off course and crashed into a truck coming from the opposite direction, driven by Panicos Nicolaou from Kornos.

The fire service had to scramble to free Stratis from his vehicle, police said. He was rushed to Larnaca hospital where doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.

The driver of the second vehicle was also taken to hospital as a precaution.

Earlier on Friday, an 87-year old man from Larnaca was killed after he was hit by a truck while crossing the road.

Nicos Flourentzou was hit by a water tanker at around noon, while crossing Spyros Kyprianou Avenue.

Flourentzou was rushed to hospital where he died shortly afterwards.

The truck driver, who was arrested following the accident, claimed he did not see Flourentzou.
