Around 7pm on Saturday 10 September a vehicle heading south on Fergusson Drive made a right turn onto Milton Street and collided with an elderly gentleman.

The victim was lifted onto the bonnet and sent flying, landing on the ground. The driver of the car failed to stop. The vehicle continued to speed off on Milton Street as members of the public went to help the victim who lay bleeding in the middle of the road.

Based on the injuries inflicted on the victim it is believed that the vehicle will be damaged.
