British tourist dies after car veers onto pavement in Paphos

A 67-year-old Briton was killed on Friday after he was hit by a car, which reportedly veered onto the pavement on Poseidonos Avenue in Paphos.

The incident happened at around 2.20pm while the man, who was in Cyprus on holiday, was taking a walk along the main coastal road in Paphos.

Reports said a car, which was apparently speeding, veered off course and went onto the pavement, hitting the tourist.

He was rushed to Paphos general hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police arrested the 22-year-old Greek Cypriot driver who was breathalysed. The results came back negative.

Police are investigating the exact circumstances that caused him to leave the road.
