6:54 am on 11 December 2014

The police are calling for sightings of a red ute they think was involved in a deliberate hit and run in Invercargill.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a 46-year-old man was knocked over while walking along Elles Road, near the intersection with Kew Road.

He remains in a stable condition in Southland Hospital with a fractured pelvis.

A stolen red Holden Rodeo believed to have been involved was later abandoned at Oreti beach.
