Police made a public appeal for information on Wednesday in a bid to track down the driver of a hit and run in Paphos that saw two 14-year-olds hospitalised.

Paphos police deputy chief, Nicos Tsiapis, said they have so far gathered that the car was a blue Opel and urged anyone with information to contact the authorities.

The incident took place at around 8pm on Tuesday on the Kato Pervolia road towards Mouttalos.

The driver hit and injured two teenagers and then fled the scene. The boys were rushed to hospital where one was treated for injuries to the pelvis, leg, and thorax. The second boy was discharged after he was given first aid.
