The vehicle was being driven by a 28-year-old Greek Cypriot woman, in the area towards Larnaca’s Medieval Castle, just beyond the Flamingo Hotel.
The younger woman underwent a breathalyser test at the scene which found 29 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath (µg/100ml,) above the 22 µg/100ml legal limit. A second test shortly afterwards determined the level had dropped to 19µg/100ml.
Due to the severity of her injuries, the tourist is being treated at Nicosia General Hospital.
