A British tourist driving a beach buggy while over the blood alcohol limit four times hit and killed a Swedish mother in a hit-and-run in Ayia Napa, Cyprus.

The 25-year-old was arrested by police and found he had cannabis and alcohol in his system.

The victim was named Camilla Christina Pamdahl, 46, from Sweden, a mother who had visited the Mediterranean island with her six-year-old daughter.

Local reports claim the mother left her daughter at the hotel with a caretaker to run errands.

Pamdahl was reportedly at a crosswalk when she was hit by the beach buggy.

The British tourist, who was allegedly driving, is said to have been illegally trying to overtake a car in front of him when they hit the woman.

He then abandoned the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot, leaving behind the buggy and the passenger.
