An 11-year-old girl is being hospitalised in critical condition at the Nicosia general after the motorbike she was a passenger on crashed into a vehicle on a Limassol road on Saturday evening, with the driver of the motorbike, 25, suffering only minor injuries.

According to the police on Sunday, the collision occurred at 6pm. The vehicle attempted to make a right turn as the motorbike was attempting to overtake it. The bike crashed into the concrete before hitting a pavement.
