The car Andreas Andreou was driving

The causes of the fatal accident which happened in Oroklini early on Friday were speeding and the non-use of a seat belt, Larnaca police announced later in the day.

According to Larnaca head of the traffic Haris Hadjiyiasemis, “the tests performed on the scene show that the main cause of the deadly road collision is speed in combination with the fact that the driver did not wear a seat belt.”

Andreas Andreou, 40, from Larnaca lost control of his vehicle on a road in Oroklini shortly after 2am, police reported.

He veered off the road to the right. The vehicle hit a road sign and overturned several times, with the result that Andreou was thrown out of his car and into a field.

An ambulance took him to Larnaca general hospital where his death was confirmed.
