A gloomy start to the weekend.

POLICE

Ballarat police reported a quiet night with nothing of interest to report.

However, police in Melbourne are still on the hunt for a driver who mowed down a pedestrian in North Fitzroy this week. 

Investigators have been told a 31-year-old man had run into a café to buy a takeaway coffee and was getting back into his car on St Georges Road when he was struck by a south-bound car around 7.15am on Wednesday. 

It’s alleged the driver of the white Hyundai did not stop and fled the scene, driving the wrong way down Best Street. 

The car was last seen turning left into Alfred Crescent. 

The victim, a North Fitzroy man, suffered a broken leg in the incident and was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he remains recuperating from his injuries. 

FIRE

A quiet night for fire crews as well with no major call-outs for the night. 

TRAINS

Due to track works between Ballarat and Maryborough, coaches will replace trains on this journey.
