Pedestrian killed in Figtree


A pedestrian has died after being hit by a car on the Princes Highway at Figtree.

Wollongong Police got the call around 9.30 last night to find the body of a man in his 50's outside the Figtree Hotel near the O'Breins Road intersection.

The male driver was uninjured but taken to Wollongong Hospital for mandatory testing while the Highway was closed southbound for sometime as investigators gathered evidence.

Police are asking witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.
