A 47-year-old man had to be rushed to hospital after he was allegedly struck in a hit-and-run while crossing the Stuart Highway in Darwin Tuesday night, NT Police said.
Police Watch Commander Siiri Tennosaar said the man was crossing the inbound lane of the highway opposite the Buff Club in Stuart Park, just before 10pm on Tuesday evening, when he was hit by a white ute, with the driver driving off from the scene.
Cdr Tennosaar said the ute could possibly be a Toyota HiLux.
“The pedestrian was transported to Royal Darwin Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries thankfully, but still injured,” she told ABC Darwin radio Wednesday morning.
Cdr Tennosaar said police are looking for any witnesses who might have seen the hit-and-run incident.
“We’re certainly looking for anyone who may be able to assist us with that matter to come forward.”
Police are urging witnesses to contact them on 131 444.
