3AW Breakfast

A man has been flung through the air after being hit by a car in a bizarre incident on Wednesday afternoon.

The man was walking along Canterbury Road, Kilsyth when a car struck him shortly after 4pm.

The victim appears to flip and lands on the nature strip.

But then, bizarrely, the victim crawls towards the car, gets in the passenger door and the car drives off.

Police believe the driver and victim are known to each other, but are concerned for the welfare of the injured man as he has not sought treatment at any hospitals in the area.

3AW Breakfast will have more detail this morning.
