Shortly after 10am this morning an elderly man is believed to have been hit by a car on Kings Mills Road in Hightown.
The road is closed off from the Kingsmill pub onwards heading into town, with Whitegate road and other roads leading to it also closed. Traffic into town is being diverted through Caia Park via Abenbury Road and Cefn Road.
Several police cars and the ambulance service are in attendance.
As of 11:10am police appear to be compiling a report of the scene, with numbered markers down and spraypaint on the road to record positions of vehicles.
An eyewitness told us “A man who looked in his 80′s walked into the road from nowhere as a driver was turning right and his head banged on the car’s windscreen, smashing the glass”.
A local resident offered a cup of tea to the driver who appeared very shocked.
Update: Monday 11am
