WATCH: Victoria Police Major Crimes detectives are investigating after the death of a pedestrian who was hit by a vehicle earlier this week
A 36-year-old man was in a crosswalk on Hillside Avenue at Higgins on Monday evening, just before 6:00 p.m. when he was hit by a car.
He suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital where he later died.
The female driver continues to cooperate with police but there’s no word yet on whether any charges will be laid.
“At this time we’re still interviewing witnesses and whatnot so that information hasn’t been released or those details to protect the integrity of the investigation wont be released at this time and we ask anybody who did witness the collision to give us a call if we haven’t spoken with them,” said Constable Matt Rutherford.
A memorial for the victim has been set up at the intersection of Hillside and Higgins.
