The accident occurred around 9pm when the car of an 18-year-old woman, under conditions that are being investigated, hit a 44-year-old man who was walking on Kolonakiou avenue.

The man was transferred via ambulance to the district’s general hospital, where he was diagnosed with serious head and neck injury as well as brain haemorrhage.
