Breaking News: Elderly Pedestrian Struck by Car in Maitland Incident

Earlier today, an elderly man was struck by a car in a harrowing incident on High Street, Maitland. The vehicle, reportedly out of control, careened onto the footpath, striking the pedestrian and colliding with two nearby buildings, including the library.

Emergency services swiftly responded to the scene at approximately 8:45 am, closing the road to aid in rescue efforts and building evacuations. Witnesses rushed to the aid of the injured pedestrian, providing crucial assistance until paramedics arrived. Remarkably, the man’s loyal dog remained by his side throughout the ordeal.

The pedestrian was subsequently transported to Maitland Hospital for further treatment, while the driver, a woman in her 30s, emerged unscathed. Authorities have apprehended the driver, who is expected to face multiple charges.

Investigations into the incident are ongoing, and anyone with pertinent information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
