A 72-year-old man sustained serious injuries after he was hit by a motorcycle driven by a 28-year-old food delivery courier on Wednesday in Limassol.

The elderly man was rushed to the Limassol hospital’s A&E first and then transferred to the Nicosia general hospital, where doctors found out that he had suffered a cerebral haemorrhage and a cranioencephalic injury.

He is now intubated at the Nicosia general. The driver also sustained minor injuries during the accident but was discharged after receiving first aid in Limassol.

The cause of the collision are being investigated by the Limassol traffic police.
