Police are appealing for public assistance after a hit and run accident on the Old Pacific Highway at Brunswick Heads on Friday night, which left a man with serious injuries.

Near the intersection with Newberry Parade, the man suddenly walked into the middle of the road where he was struck by an eastbound utility.

The ute did not stop after the accident but drove off at high speed towards Brunswick Heads.
