The tragic accident happened yesterday at 2.25pm as Andreas Konstantinou was working in a Nicosia road, said police.

The heavy truck rolled forward off the pavement and onto the road, injuring Konstantinou who was a few metres in front of the truck, said police. A member of the public managed to enter the truck and stop it before it injured anyone else.

Konstantinou was taken to hospital where doctors certified he was dead on arrival.
