Shortly before 3pm today a Holden Commodore sedan was travelling north along Main Street.

The Holden struck one vehicle but continued until near the intersection with Warrick Lane the Holden crossed to the wrong side of the road to pass stationary vehicle and struck a 61-year-old man on a pedestrian crossing.

Although the man was carried on the vehicle for a short time the Holden continued and made a right hand turn into Warwick Lane where it eventually stopped.
