A man is in hospital with serious injuries after an alleged hit-and-run near Perth’s CBD.
Police say the man was at a bus stop in Rivervale, arguing with his girlfriend, when he stepped backwards and was struck.
One step backwards off the curb during a heated roadside argument and Lawrence Anison was left bleeding with broken bones.
Police say the 28-year-old stepped into the path of the four wheel drive. His girlfriend saw the incident happen just metres from their home.
He was hit on the Great Eastern Highway about midnight on Sunday morning and was thrown several metres into the air.
“Really upset, yeah,” his aunty Ginny Narkle said.
“He’s a good person. He’s got a good heart, he’d never do nothing to hurt nobody.”
Mr Anison has several broken bones but it’s what you can’t see that has doctors concerned. He suffered massive internal injuries.
Police say the driver took off but later handed himself in.
He is helping detectives with their investigations. He has not been charged.
