On Monday night, two Danish tourists were seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in Malta’s capital Valetta, the Times of Malta reports. The motorcycle is reported to have been involved in a head-on collision with a taxi.
A man was driving the bike with his girlfriend when the accident took place. The female passenger was “critically injured” after she was thrown through the air following the impact. The driver also sustained serious injury.
A commenter on the Times of Malta article identifies the stretch of Great Siege Road, where the accident took place, as being particularly prone to accidents.
The local police confirmed to BT that the accident had taken place and that a Danish lady had been seriously injured. The police also told the paper that the Danish consulate on the island had been informed.
