Stu­dent run over on ze­bra cross­ing

Cyprus Today - - NEWS -

A STU­DENT was run over at 2.15pm on Thurs­day while at­tempt­ing to cross the dual car­riage­way at a con­tro­ver­sial ze­bra cross­ing op­po­site the Cyprus In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity be­tween the Hamitköy and Haspo­lat round­abouts. Traf­fic ex­perts have long crit­i­cised the pedes­trian cross­ing, which is barely vis­i­ble, as un­suit­able and dan­ger­ous and have called for an al­ter­na­tive pedes­trian bridge or sub­way.

Po­lice said that Savaş Ürel, 60, was driv­ing in the di­rec­tion of Gaz­i­mağusa with­out due care and at­ten­tion when he struck Evrim At­lan, 23, as he was cross­ing.

Mr At­lan was taken to the Le­fkoşa State Hos­pi­tal and a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion has be­gun.
