Seven injured in head-on collision after woman drove on wrong side of the road

Seven people were injured in a car crash in Paphos on Sunday, after one of the vehicles was driving in the opposite lane.

In one car was a German couple, with a 55-year-old man and a 61-year-old woman and in the second vehicle, five Greek Cypriots, which were a woman aged 40 and her three children aged 14, 15 and 17 as well as their grandmother, aged 57.

The accident took place at around 1pm on the Droushia – Prodromiou – Polys Chrysochous road.

It appears that the 40-year-old woman was driving on the wrong side of the road and crashed with the incoming vehicle that the German couple was in.

As a result of the collision, all seven people sustained injuries and were taken to Paphos general hospital.

Fire services were called to the scene to rescue one of the seven out of the car.

The 14-year-old boy suffered a skull fracture and was transferred to Nicosia general hospital.

His 57-year-old grandmother was in the intensive care unit after surgery for chest injuries. She also suffered injuries to her face.
