A man who was hit by a lorry in Norwich remains in a critical condition.
Police were called shortly after 12pm yesterday (Monday, May 21) to reports of a collision near the Earlham Road roundabout.
A man in his 80s was hit by a Renault lorry, which was travelling on the A140 Farrow Road towards the roundabout.
The road was closed while emergency services attended the scene, and was reopened around 4.30pm.
Police said the man remains in a critical condition at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened, or the “manner” of the lorry and pedestrian prior to incident.
Witnesses should contact PC Nathan Woodgate at Wymondham Roads Policing by calling 101.
