Pantelis Panteli was driving his car towards Astromeritis when he entered the oncoming lane and collided with a truck travelling in the opposite direction.

The victim was trapped in his car until the fire department managed to free him and take him to hospital. Sadly, doctors could do nothing but certify his death.

Morphou traffic police are investigating the crash.

It is the second deadly road accident since the beginning of the week, after a 44-year-old Vietnamese woman was killed in a car accident as she was crossing the road in Aglandjia, Nicosia.
