Police continue hunt for Cheltenham driver

Moorabbin Highway Patrol members continue to investigate a bike crash in which a rider was struck by a car and seriously injured in Cheltenham last month.

The rider, a 53-year-old Dingley man, was travelling westbound on Centre Dandenong Road when he was hit by a white utility vehicle at the corner of Brownfield Street about 5.55am on 30 April.

The driver of the vehicle fled the scene without stopping.

Investigators have released images and CCTV footage of the utility driving past a chemist on the corner of Warrigal Road and Centre Dandenong Road just moments before the crash, in the hope someone will come forward with information.

Officers believe the vehicle involved is a Nissan Navara utility, which may have damage to its front-left fog light from the impact with the bicycle.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, has CCTV/dashcam footage, or information, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at
