stretcherRoad accidents claimed two more lives over the weekend when a 23-year-old man died on Sunday and a 26-year-old man on Saturday.

Today, Charis Bakalouris died in an accident in Limassol after the car in which he was a passenger collided with a tree. The driver lost control of the vehicle, veering into oncoming traffic and then speeding off the road into one of the trees lining Limassol seafront.

None of the three men in the car were wearing seatbelts, said police.

Yesterday, 26-year-old Stefan Bartaz from Romania was killed when the pick up truck he was travelling in crashed into another vehicle near Ayia Marinouda village in the Paphos region.

Four other men in the car were lightly injured, said police.
