The woman who was riding on the back of a quadbike which crashed in Peyia is hospitalised and out of danger on Tuesday.

The driver of the quad bike, Iuliia Viacheslavovna Kovalchukova, 49 years old from Russia and a resident of Paphos, died on Sunday.

An autopsy confirmed the death was caused by multiple injuries to vital organs from the crash.
