Man struck by car while mowing the lawn dies in hospital

A man who was struck by a 4WD in Elebeena last weekend, has died in hospital overnight.

About 1.10pm on Saturday 24 October 2015, emergency services were called to Buring Close, following reports of a crash.

Initial investigations suggest a 60-year-old man was mowing his front lawn, when he was struck by a Mitsubishi Pajero that was reversing.


The driver of the Pajero, also a 60-year-old man, stopped following the collision and rendered assistance to the man.

The driver was later taken to Belmont Hospital where he underwent mandatory blood and urine tests.

The pedestrian was treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics, for critical injuries.

He was taken to John Hunter Hospital, and died last night, Sunday 1 November 2015.

Investigations into the incident are continuing.
