A young man from Paralimni succumbed to his injuries on Monday following a motorcycle accident ten days earlier when a car pulled out and blocked his way.
According to Cyprus News Agency, 17-year-old Stefanos Piliotis died in hospital Monday morning, at Nicosia General, where he was admitted in intensive care following a road accident on June 7.
Stefanos was riding his motorcycle heading to Paralimni around 6:10pm on Protaras Avenue, when a parked car driven by a 64-year-old male pulled out of a roadside parking space.
The car was parked by the roadside, facing east, when the driver pulled out and made an attempt to head west-bound towards Paralimni
The biker was seriously injured and was rushed to Paralimni General Hospital, where doctors said he had a broken leg and suffered a head injury. He was then transferred to Nicosia General where he was admitted to the ICU and later succumbed to his injuries on Monday morning around 10:30am.
According to police, the car was parked by the roadside, facing east, in a designated area, when the driver made an attempt to head west-bound towards Paralimni.
A Breathalyzer test administered on the car driver showed zero alcohol, while police investigators said the biker was not wearing his protective helmet at the time of the accident. It was not fully clear whether speed was a factor in the accident.
A post mortem to be scheduled soon is expected to show the exact cause of death.
