Man suffered life-threatening injuries when hit by car in Geraldton
A Geraldton man in his thirties suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by a car in Geraldton last night, police say.
Mid West Gascoyne District Superintendent Mike Bell said the man was struck by a blue Holden Barina hatch in Phelps Street near Kononen Place, about 10pm.
Supt Bell said the man was taken to Geraldton Hospital with suspected bleeding on the brain.
He was flown by Royal Flying Doctor Service to the State trauma centre at Royal Perth Hospital for further treatment early this afternoon.
An RFDS spokeswoman said the man had head, chest, spine and pelvis injuries and internal bleeding.
Police are interviewing the alleged driver of the car, a Geraldton woman in her 30s, who Supt Bell said was in a relationship with the victim.
He said it appeared the two had been travelling in the vehicle and that the man had got out of the vehicle and started walking when he was struck by the car.
Supt Bell said no charges had been laid and he was not suggesting criminality.
Police are calling on witnesses to come forward and for CCTV or dash cam footage of the incident.
Contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Geraldton Police Station on 9923 4555.
Phelps Street remains closed to traffic while crash investigators examine the scene.
