The male driver of the white Ford Falcon was heading west down Summer Street and hit the 32-year-old female pedestrian after he turned right into Peisley Street.

The pedestrian lights were green when the pedestrian crossed the road.

Canobolas local area commend duty officer Bruce Grassick said police are trying to track down the driver of the Falcon who was described as being in his 20s and Caucasian and wearing a baseball cap at the time of the incident.

Inspector Grassick said there was a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the accident although witnesses were unable to provide a description of them.

Inspector Grassick said police were concerned that that the driver who “clipped” the pedestrian failed to stop, exchange details or help.

“In an incident like this the driver needs to stop and render assistance and establish what’s happened and see if medical aide is needed,” he said.

“It appears in this case the driver has disobeyed a red signal; this is something drivers need to be vigilant about.”

Inspector Grassick said the pedestrian was not serious injured.

“It could have been much worse,” he said.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Orange police station on: 63636399.
