According to the police, the vehicle was tracked down and its 76-year-old driver, a Greek Cypriot man, arrested on Thursday. The car, a double-cabin truck, is undergoing tests to confirm it is the same one that hit cyclist Panagiotis Hadjinikolas, 33, from Zakaki.
Hadjinikolas was hit by a car as he was cycling on the main Kantou-Platres road on Thursday. The vehicle’s driver then sped off.
The cyclist’s body was discovered by another motorist at around 6am on Thursday morning.
