Man dies after be­ing hit by car

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

A 25-YEAR-OLD man died after be­ing struck by a ve­hi­cle in Tara last Fri­day night.

The man was al­legedly walk­ing on Tara Ko­gan Rd at Tara when, about 7pm, he was struck by a ve­hi­cle.

He was rushed to Tara Hospi­tal for treat­ment, but was later pro­nounced de­ceased.

Po­lice said the driver of the ve­hi­cle was not phys­i­cally in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

The Foren­sic Crash Unit is still in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

It comes after the Tara Po­lice ex­e­cuted a heavy push on road safety over two weeks. They per­formed 729 breath tests and is­sued 14 in­fringe­ment no­tices for speed­ing. Dur­ing this op­er­a­tion, po­lice in­ter­cepted one drink driver, one un­li­censed driver driv­ing an un­reg­is­tered and unin­sured ve­hi­cle, and two peo­ple driv­ing with an il­licit drug in their sys­tem.

Po­lice will be con­tin­u­ing traf­fic en­force­ment pa­trols over the next few weeks.
