Auckland Police are looking for witnesses to a fatal hit-and-run incident that killed a man in his 50s in New Lynn last night, police said.

The incident occurred on Great North Rd at 9pm on Monday night.

The victim received first aid at the scene but sadly could not be revived and died.

Police believe the driver of the vehicle would have known that they struck someone last night, says Detective Sergeant Steve Salton.

“We want the person or people in that vehicle to come forward and contact Waitemata Police immediately on (09) 839 0697 or information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the crash last night or may have seen a vehicle that has damage to the left front, which they didn’t have before.

The information you have may not seem like much to you, but it could be just what Police needs to solve this, says Detective Sergeant Steve Salton.
