5 people were injured in a major traffic accident last night on the Kyrenia – Nicosia Road near the Bogazoy picnic area. The driver lost control while going at speed and the car veered off the road, rolling over many times and only stopping when it smashed into a roadside advertising sign.
The 5 passengers were all students of the Near East University. One of them, 22 year old Anil Erdemir was flung out of the car and suffered serious injuries. He has undergone surgery and is currently in intensive care. The other four young men sustained various minor injuries and are also being treated at Nicosia state hospital.
Police are making inquiries.
