One man is in custody following the death of a 30-year-old man in the Reykjavík capital area last weekend, Vísir reports. The incident was reported last Friday morning when the victim’s girlfriend found him heavily injured in the parking lot outside their Kópavogur home. Authorities suspect he was struck by a car.


The victim was named Daníel Eiríksson and was born in 1990. Three Romanian citizens were arrested on Saturday in connection with the incident and two were released. The man in custody says the incident was an accident and he is devastated as a result, according to his counsel.


The three men that were arrested in connection to the incident were around the same age as the victim. Police are investigating whether there were any witnesses to the incident as well as whether it was recorded by security cameras.
