Police are appealing for assistance after an elderly man was hit by a car that failed to stop in Bathurst yesterday.

Just before 4.30pm yesterday (Wednesday 14 June 2017), a 73-year-old man was crossing George Street when he was struck by a white Toyota utility turning from Durham Street.

He was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a serious but stable condition, suffering a fractured leg and facial injuries.

Witnesses reported the driver rendered assistance to the injured man but left before police arrived.

Police believe that the driver of the utility shown in a CCTV image can assist with their inquiries.

The driver is described as being 172cm tall with a thin build and had scruffy grey hair. He was seen wearing a flannelette shirt and dark coloured pants.

Officers from Chifley Local Area Command are investigating the incident and have urged the driver and any witnesses to the crash to come forward.
