A car ended up on its roof following a collision with a pickup truck near Rabat, in Gozo, on Saturday evening.

A 22-year-old youngster lost control of the vehicle and crashed into another car, but no one was hurt. 

The accident took place on Triq Papa Granni Pawlu II, near the aqueduct.

The spot is a notorious accident blackspot, since the two-lane road narrows down at the arch, with traffic coming from the direction of Rabat having to give way to vehicles coming from the direction of Gharb.

The accident took place in the direction of Ghasri, at around 10pm. The police were called on location to assist.

The 22-year-old, from Qormi, had a passenger in the car, who had already managed to exit the vehicle when the police arrived at the scene. Neither the driver nor the passenger sustained any grievous injuries. The other driver, a German national residing in Rabat, was not hurt either.

The vehicle was towed away, whilst the Civil Protection Department cleared the road.

This was the second accident in Gozo on Saturday night, with another car overturning in Xaghra, at around 7pm.

In this accident, the vehicle was involved in a crash with another two cars.

Carnival weekend sees an influx of Maltese people travelling to Gozo in anticipation of the events taking place, especially the infamous Nadur spontaneous carnival.
