Russian pedestrian critical after being hit by car in Larnaca

A Russian tourist is in a critical condition after being hit by a car in Larnaca in the early hours of Saturday.

According to the police, the 57-year-old woman had been trying to cross a road on foot in Larnaca’s Mackenzie area at around 3am when she was hit by a car.

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.

Investigations into the circumstances of the accident are continuing.

  1. So why wasn’t a blood test undertaken? Much more accurate measure of alcohol content.
