Irishman Daniel Finbarr Galvin was trapped in his car after the collision with a truck driven by a 44-year-old man. Firemen managed to get him out of his car and he was rushed to Larnaca General Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The 44-year-old was arrested in suspicion of causing an accident through negligence, and Larnaca traffic police are investigating the tragedy.

This is the third road fatality in the space of a week after two motorcyclists were killed in separate accidents.
