Fatal - Hit and run - Alice Springs


Northern Territory Police are calling for information after a fatal hit and run in Alice Springs overnight.

At around 9:50pm, police received reports of an unconscious female on Gap Road near the intersection with Kempe Street. She was conveyed to Alice Springs Hospital but the 25-year-old later succumbed to her injuries.

A silver sedan, possibly a VE model Holden Commodore, was seen leaving the area just before the woman was located.

Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Schumacher said, “The Major Crash Unit and Alice Springs CIB are investigating and we are urging anyone in the area at that time who may have seen or heard something to make contact on 131 444. Please quote reference 10016272.

“Police would also like to speak with the driver of the silver vehicle as they may be able to assist with enquiries.”
