Alpine Way

A man has died in hospital after he was hit by a bus crossing Alpine Way near Kosciuszko National Park earlier this month.

See our original report:

At about 3.30pm on Friday 5 August 2016, the 73-year-old man parked his car near the entry to the National Park at Bullocks Flat, and attempted to cross Alpine Way.

A bus travelling east along the same road hit the man.

Officers from Monaro Local Area Command conducting random roadside breath testing nearby went to the assistance of the man, before he was airlifted to The Canberra Hospital to be treated for head injuries and a fractured leg.

The male driver of the bus was not injured and taken to Cooma Hospital for mandatory testing.

Yesterday, the 73-year-old man died in hospital.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner. No further police action is expected.
