Around 10 pm a 26-year-old man was dropped off by a taxi near the intersection of William Webb Drive and Callaghan Street.

After dropping off the man the taxi driver drove up William Webb Drive, performed a U-turn and approached the man who was near the middle of the road.

The taxi drove into the victim trapping him under the vehicle and then sped off.
