Police are responding to serious crash in North Adelaide, South Australia

A woman has been seriously injured and police are looking for a driver following a crash overnight in North Adelaide.

Just after 3.30am, Sunday 7 August, patrols and paramedics were called to Sir Edwin Smith Avenue, after a woman had been run over.

It’s believed the woman was in the rear passenger seat of a Mercedes utility when she opened the door and fell onto the roadway as the ute turned right from King William Road onto Sir Edwin Smith Avenue. A Toyota sedan driving behind at the time slowed down having seen the woman lying on the road. At this time, a taxi driving behind the Toyota, changed into the second turn lane and ran over the woman.

Police were able to confirm the circumstances following a review of CCTV. The driver of the Mercedes left the scene prior to police arriving.

The 21-year-old from Greenwith was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
