Gold Coast Police are appealing for help to identify the driver of a car which allegedly failed to stop after colliding with a pedestrian at Nerang earlier this year.

The incident happened just after 4.00pm, on Monday July 17.

Detectives said a 40-year-old man was walking towards his car, parked at a shopping-centre on Station Road, when he was struck by a green-coloured sedan.


The man was thrown onto the bonnet of the vehicle, before falling to the ground.

He was lucky to escape with minor leg and hand injuries.

The driver of the car, who is described as Caucasian in appearance, approximately 30 to 40-years-old, with a clean-shaven face and light brown hair, then left the scene.
