A British tourist has been arrested in Greece after reports said he attempted to make a U-turn and hit and killed a person on a passing motorbike.
The 52-year-old Briton, who has not been named for legal reasons, is said to have hit the 42-year-old head-on with his car yesterday.
The Brit would try to perform a U-turn in the middle of the road and hit the motorcyclist.
The incident occurred outside a fire station near the village of Prosilio on the Kalamata-Areopolis road that runs across the country’s southern coast at around 3pm on Thursday.
According to local reports, the motorcyclist, a father of two, was killed instantly.
It is believed that the motorcyclist was returning home to Kalamata (pictured) after work on his motorcycle.
The father of two was a driver for an intercity bus company in Messina, a region in the southwest of Greece’s Peloponnese region.
It is believed that after work he returned home to the south of Kalamata on his motorcycle.
West Mani police said the collision occurred about 17 miles down the long stretch of road.
According to police, the driver drove towards Areopoli, further along the coast, and then ran into the opposite flow of traffic.
The borough’s West Mani authorities have confirmed that the 52-year-old British citizen has been arrested.
Police said they would continue to investigate the fatal incident.
