An 18 year-old man has been arrested in Nicosia after losing control of his car and smashing into four teenage girls standing in front of a supermarket wall in Lakatamia.

The girls were taken to Nicosia hospital. Two of the four needed surgery and the other two were treated at A&E, police said.

One of the girls is in critical condition and had to have her left leg amputated. A second suffered fractures to her legs, ribs and pelvis.

The incident happened around midnight Saturday.

Police said on Sunday they were investigating the exact circumstances of how the 18-year-old lost control of his car and ended up on the pavement. Blood analysis came back negative for alcohol and drugs, they said.
