POLICE INVESTIGATING PEDESTRIAN HIT AND RUN RELEASE CCTV

Police have released CCTV vision, after a pedestrian was seriously injured in a crash on the state’s north coast over the weekend.

Around 8pm on Sunday July 8, emergency services were called to Minjungbal Drive, Tweed Heads South, following reports a utility had struck a pedestrian and the driver failed to stop.

On arrival, officers found a 59-year-old woman suffering head and leg injuries.

She was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital where she has undergone surgery and remains in a stable condition.

Officers wish to speak with the drivers of three vehicles who may be able to assist.

The vehicles shown in the vision include:

– a white, possibly 2009 to 2015 model Mitsubishi Triton, single-cab utility with a damaged left-side mirror, a rear steel tray and canopy, and writing on the passenger-side door.

– a dark grey Ford Fiesta, or similar small hatchback

– and a sports motorcycle

Any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage is urged to come forward.
