78-year-old Limassol district pensioner Pericles Stylianou became the eighth road accident fatality this month after his car plunged 110 metres into a ravine on the Limassol-Armenochori road.

The accident happened at 9.45 this morning after the driver veered off the road. Investigators said they don't know how he lost control of the car, but he was not wearing a safety belt and died of his injuries in Limassol General Hospital.

Limassol traffic police have appealed for anyone who saw the accident to come forward with information.
