A pedestrian hit by a vehicle while crossing a road in Lyneham last week has died in hospital, becoming the sixth fatality on ACT roads this year.
At about 5:30 pm on 18 June 2021, ACT Policing received reports that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle on a pedestrian crossing near the intersection of Brigalow and Hall Streets.
An 84-year-old man sustained serious injuries as a result of the accident and was taken to hospital by ACT Ambulance Service paramedics for emergency treatment.
The man succumbed to his injuries yesterday (24 June).
Following an investigation by ACT Road Policing’s Major Collision Investigation Team, police expect to charge the 61-year-old female driver via summons with negligent driving causing death.
