Russian tourist killed in Ayia Napa accident

Female tourist aged 73 fatally struck by taxi as she was trying to cross the street


An elderly Russian tourist was killed on Thursday in a road accident in Ayia Napa, after she was struck by an oncoming vehicle while she was attempting to cross the road.

The tourist, a 73-year-old woman who was vacationing in Cyprus, tried to cross the street on Nissi avenue on foot when she was hit by am oncoming taxi driven by a local 65-year-old driver.

The accident took place in the afternoon, around 3:45pm, and police immediately arrived on the scene. Officers also performed a Breathalyzer test on the Greek Cypriot driver who showed zero alcohol in his bloodstream.

The accident comes a day after another senior citizen was critically wounded in Paphos while crossing the street, and two days after another elderly man died on a Limassol hospital bed, a month after he was struck where he also lost his wife in the same accident.
