LOCAL policing authorities are on the lookout for anyone with information regarding an alleged hit-and-run incident last Friday which resulted in the death of a man believed to be in his 40s.

Arriving on the scene after the incident, ER24 paramedics found the man’s body lying in the middle of the road on the N3 highway after the Church Street off-ramp.

Paramedics then assessed the man and found that he had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life upon inspection.

“Unfortunately, nothing could be done for him and we declared him dead on site,” said ER24 communications officer Russel Meiring. Police noted that the vehicle involved in the alleged hit-and-run was nowhere to be found and no one has come forward thus far but they confirmed that investigations are ongoing. — Supplied
