Police detain 19-yr-old after motorway race

 

Following a chase, police detained a 19-year-old on Saturday after he was clocked driving at 203km per hour, double the legal limit, on the Larnaca to Nicosia motorway just after midnight.

Officers flagged the man down but he failed to stop and continued towards Nicosia while trying to evade the police.

At the Orphanides junction on Troodos Avenue, the man run a red light before colliding sideways with the patrol car and coming to a halt.

A breathalyser test showed 14 microgammes, five times higher than the legal limit for young drivers.

The man was expected to be charged later Saturday
