Female passenger in critical condition

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.
