A male driver from Nicosia was killed in a road accident after his car collided head on with another vehicle on Friday near a road bridge between Nisou and Pera Chorio.

According to police, 44-year-old Giorgos Foulias was driving northbound on Friday evening, along Pera Chorio’s Limassol Avenue in Nicosia district, with his 6-year-old son as his passenger.

Suddenly, just after 6pm, Foulias vehicle, under circumstances still pending an investigation, collided head on with a southbound car driven by a 20-year-old female driver who had a 21-year-old female passenger, both of whom were described as Greek Cypriots.

First responders called on fire fighters to help pull the male driver out of the wreckage while all four were rushed to the Emergency Room at Nicosia General Hospital, where doctors pronounced the man dead on arrival.

The six year old boy, who had a broken arm, was transferred to Nicosia’s Makarios Children Hospital for further medical treatment, while the two young women received first aid and were released.
