Pedestrian hurt in hit-and-run
POLICE are appealing for witnesses to an accident that knocked a pedestrian off her feet on a Coffs Harbour pedestrian crossing about 3.45pm on Friday, June 11.
The 25-year-old woman was walking across the pedestrian crossing in Gordon Street near the Dick Smith outlet when she was hit by what is believed to have been a silver grey Holden Rodeo with a bull bar, which came out of the lane between Bananacoast Hot Bake and Dick Smith electronics and turned left into Gordon Street.
The woman, who was walking to the post office with the afternoon mail from her office when she was struck by the car, told police the male driver stopped and looked out his window but then continued driving south to the Park Avenue roundabout.
Police said the woman, who was treated at the scene by ambulance officers and allowed to go home, later found herself unable to move and attended hospital the following day for X-rays.
She is now faced with possible knee and ankle surgery.
Senior Constable Daryl Connett said police had spoken to a number of witnesses but none of them had taken down the registration number of the car. He is appealing to the driver of the 4WD or to anyone who was in Gordon Street on June 11 and saw the accident and the car involved, to contact Coffs Harbour Police on 6652 0299 with the registration number of the vehicle.
