Woman critical after motorcycle crash

Car blocks way, biker and his female passenger crash into a cement wall in Nicosia


A 25-year-old woman, who was a passenger on a motorcycle, was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit following a serious accident on Sunday morning in Nicosia.

According to media reports, a 26-year-old man was driving his car on Spiros Kyprianou Avenue around 6:45am when he made an illegal right turn, blocking the way of a motorcycle driven by a 21-year-old male who also had a female passenger.

It was not immediately clear whether other factors were involved in the crash, such as speed or weather

The motorcycle collided with the vehicle and veered off the road, striking a cement wall right outside the Lykavitos Police Station.

The 25-year-old female, who was critically injured in the collision, including head and back injuries, was rushed to the Emergency Room at Nicosia General Hospital.

The biker sustained multiple fractures on his body and was admitted into hospital for medical treatment, while the driver of the car was reportedly not seriously injured.

According to media sources, traffic police investigators determined the two victims on the motorcycle were not wearing protective helmets at the time of the collision. It was not immediately clear whether other factors were involved in the crash, such as speed or weather.
