Pedestrian hit by car in CBD

A PEDESTRIAN suffered possible head and spinal injuries after he was hit by a car on the intersection of Quay and Targo Sts yesterday morning.

The 64-year-old man was taken to Bundaberg Hospital suffering serious injuries about 7am, but was believed to be stable last night.

Bundaberg police sergeant Steve Schultz said a Suzuki Swift hatchback had been driving east along the Quay St service lane and was turning into Targo St when the accident happened.

It was believed the pedestrian walked in front of the car, driven by a 24-year-old man, as it made the turn into Targo St.

Sgt Schultz said it was likely glare from the early-morning sun played a part in the incident.

"I think the sun would have played a part," he said.

"There were shadows cast across the road and the sun was beaming directly in front of the vehicle."

Members of the driver's family were thought to have been in the vehicle.

Sgt Schultz said initial investigations indicated no fault on the driver's part had contributed to the accident.

"There is no indication at this stage that the driver has committed any dangerous action," he said.

"It appears (the pedestrian) has stepped in front of the vehicle and the driver has had no time to react."

Police investigations are continuing.
