Driver five times over the limit arrested after accident

A 40-year-old man from Bulgaria was arrested on Tuesday in Paralimni after crashing his vehicle into another car after having consumed almost five times the permitted alcohol level.

According to the police, the accident occurred at around 10.30pm when the 40-year-old who was driving along Bosporus Street in Paralimni, ignored a stop sign and entered another street where he crashed into a car driven by a 29-year-old man.

None of the two men were injured, but both cars were damaged.

The 40-year-old’s breathalyser indicated he had consumed 99 micrograms instead of the permitted level of 22μg.
