Mini-bus driver may have died at the wheel, passengers unhurt in crash (Updated)

A 57-year-old man died on Tuesday while driving a mini bus with 10 passengers in Paphos.

Police have not ruled out the possibility that Marios Chrysostomou, from Limassol had a heart attack while driving, which led him to lose control of the vehicle hitting a guard rail.

The accident took place while the bus was going from Panagia towards Statos Ayios Fotios village at around 11:20am with 10 tourists on board.

No passengers were hurt.

According to Paphos police spokesman Nicos Tsiapis, the vehicle went towards the right hand side, hitting a guard rail and then a billboard.

The bus then moved to the left where it hit a guardrail again and was immobilised at a house fence.

Chrysostomou was taken to the Paphos general hospital where doctors confirmed his death.

A post mortem will confirm the exact cause of death.
