A 43-YEAR-OLD Labasa pedestrian is recovering in the CWMH's Accident Emergency Unit after he was hit by a vehicle along Victoria Pde in Suva on Tuesday.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the victim was hit by a vehicle driven by 33-year-old.

"The accused was driving in the right outer lane when the pedestrian suddenly crossed the road and as a result, the victim was bumped," he said.

"The victim is in a stable condition but is kept under observation at the unit."

The victim sustained a six-centimetre cut to the head.

The incident has prompted police to once again reiterate the need for drivers and pedestrians to exercise precaution.
