Pedestrian killed on Sydney's Anzac Parade
A man has died after being hit by a car in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to Anzac Parade after reports a pedestrian had been hit at the corner of Kenny Avenue, Chifley, just after 2.30pm.
An emergency helicopter was also called to the location where paramedics attempted to treat the man, who went into cardiac arrest.
The man in his 70s was pronounced dead at the scene.
“I thought it was a car hitting a car, because we have a lot of that here. But I looked out the window and saw the body go flying through the air,” local resident Marie Austin told 9News.
The male driver was taken to Prince of Wales hospital for mandatory testing.
Road closures remain in place northbound from Little Bay Road to Forrest Street, with diversions in place.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
More to come.
