A garbage truck driver was killed yesterday after being crushed by his own vehicle on the Lympia-Mosfiloti road in Larnaca.
According to police officials, 50-year-old Savvas Hagoudis from Larnaca had taken his waste collection vehicle to a repair shop after noticing a fault during one of his routes. It is believed the victim had gone under the heavy vehicle to look for the problem when the truck moved forward crushing him in the process. Hagoudis was taken to Larnaca General Hospital where doctors declared him dead-on-arrival.
Pera Chorio Nisou police are still investigating the incident.
Political party Edek – of which Hagoudis was also a member – cancelled their meeting last night with the Cyprus Green Party upon hearing the news of his death.
