Man charged in relation to Queensland hit and run, woman remains in critical condition

Police have charged a man in relation to a hit and run incident in Queensland on Thursday when a woman was knocked down by a large construction vehicle as she crossed the road.

 

Police were called to the intersection of Hamilton Place and Campbell Street in Bowen Hills just after 1am after reports 27-year-old Iuliana Stevenson had been hit by a vehicle.

Horrific CCTV footage shows Ms Stevenson crossing the road in Bowen Hills, seemingly oblivious to the large construction vehicle turning directly into her path.

With a small crane attached, the vehicle can be seen hitting her front on before driving over her.
