Man dies after found lying on Melbourne's Princes Highway at Noble Park


Melbourne Princes Highway death investigated


Police are appealing for the driver who allegedly hit a man and left him to die in the middle of a Melbourne road to come forward.
A driver of a passing vehicle noticed the man on the Princes Highway at Noble Park, in the city's south-east, just after 8pm yesterday.
Emergency services attended the scene before taking the man to hospital in a critical condition.
He died a short time later upon arriving at Dandenong Hospital.
Detective Acting Sergeant Phil Frith said the man was crossing the road at the highway when he was allegedly struck by a vehicle.
"That vehicle stopped for a very short time but then it continued east on the Princes Highway," he said.
"The male was found several minutes later lying on the road by other motorists, they rendered assistance, called triple-zero."
Det. Sgt Frith said CCTV showed a dark-coloured car in the area.
"We believe the driver would be aware that they have hit someone," he said.
"It's hard to understand how they wouldn't stop and assist this person, but then again they might have their reasons."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
