New Lynn pedestrian dies

Press Release – New Zealand Police

Police are making an appeal for information on a fatal hit and run in New Lynn last night, at about 9pm.

A local man aged in his early 50s was on Great North Road last night, and was hit by a vehicle.

He received first aid at the scene but sadly could not be revived and died.

Police believe the driver of the vehicle would have known that they struck someone last night, says Detective Sergeant Steve Salton.

“We want the person or people in that vehicle to come forward and contact Waitemata Police immediately on (09) 839 0697 or information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the crash last night or may have seen a vehicle that has damage to the left front, which they didn’t have before.

The information you have may not seem like much to you, but it could be just what Police needs to solve this, says Detective Sergeant Steve Salton.
