Drunk driver seriously injures 47-year-old woman- police say
A 47-year-old woman was seriously injured by a drunk driver, police said on Monday.
Specifically, the driver hit the women in the Kofinou area, while he was driving with a blood-alcohol content 11 times the limit.
The woman was trapped inside her vehicle after the accident, necessitating her removal from the car by fire fighters. She was then taken to hospital, police said, where on-call doctors said that her condition was serious, but she was not in danger.
The 34-year-old driver was arrested at the scene after being given a breathalyser test, which showed a BAC of 107 mg instead of the legal 9 mg, police said.
The man was also found to not possess a license after it was previously suspended, police said.
Police are continuing their investigations.
