Pedestrian in critical condition

A 42-year-old man is in a critical condition at Royal Perth Hospital after he was struck by a Toyota Landcruiser in Kalgoorlie-Boulder on Saturday.

About 11am, the pedestrian was knocked unconscious by a vehicle travelling along Hampden Street towards Lionel Street.

He was taken to Kalgoorlie Hospital and later flown to Royal Perth Hospital with internal injuries. An RPH spokesman said he was in a critical but stable condition yesterday.

Sergeant Russell Chamberlain said the 42-year-old driver had been interviewed and, as yet, no charges had been laid.

“The driver arranged for an ambulance to attend and reported the matter directly to the station,” he said. “At this stage, alcohol and speed do not appear to be a factor in relation to the driver."

Sgt Chamberlain said the Goldfields-Esperance Traffic Unit was continuing with investigations. He urged anyone who saw the incident to phone 9021 9760.
