Byron police were still investigating a crash that left a homeless man in his sixties seriously injured last week, Inspector Matt Kehoe said Monday morning.
The 62-year-old man was reportedly crossing Fletcher Street in Byron Bay’s CBD when a woman driving a Toyota station wagon hit him on Monday 12 July, around 5.40pm.
Police at the time said they took the woman to the Byron Bay Hospital for mandatory testing but a week later, Inspector Kehoe said no charges had been laid.
Meanwhile, the injured pedestrian was still in hospital and due for surgery this week.
‘He’s out of intensive care and is now on the orthopaedic ward of the Gold Coast University Hospital,’ Insp. Kehoe told The Echo.
The man had suffered ‘significant injuries’ to his legs, arms and pelvis, Insp. Kehoe said.
