A 25-year-old Alexandra man who fell from a moving van at the weekend remains in a serious condition in Dunedin Hospital.

Andrew James Sinclair fell from the van on Saturday evening on State Highway Eight between Clyde and Cromwell, and sustained serious head injuries.

Witnesses said the man was trying to climb out of a window of the van while it was travelling at about 100 kilometres an hour, and fell out in the process.
