A MAN is being treated for leg injuries he sustained after he was hit by a truck late yesterday afternoon at Nadawa.

The incident is believed to have happened around 5pm yesterday and apart from the man admitted in hospital, nobody else was injured, police spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said.

"There was an accident at the junction, somewhere near Nadawa. A truck hit a pedestrian," Insp Sokomuri said.

"He suffered leg injuries and he is now at the hospital. The truck driver is currently being interviewed by police."

Insp Sokomuri said although details were still being gathered by police, it was clear the man was hit while he was crossing the road.
