THE AUTOPSY on rally driver Vahan Terzian, who died in a car crash late on
Wednesday, showed that he died from internal bleeding caused by the crash,
police said yesterday.
The autopsy, carried out by State Coroner Sophocles Sophocleous, ruled out the
possibility that Terzian, 45, had suffered a heart attack while at the wheel of
his silver Toyota Celica Coupe.
The car plunged over a cliff into the sea near Petra Tou Romiou on the Limassol
to Paphos Road.
Also present at the autopsy was former state coroner Marios Matsakis, who had
been appointed by the company that provided Terzian's life insurance policy.
Terzian was married with two children, one from his first marriage. His wife is
currently expecting their second child.
