A PENSIONER who was loading items into the boot of his vehicle has been left with potentially life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car.

"The man was taken to hospital, where he currently remains, with serious and potentially life-threatening injuries. 

"No one else was injured in the incident."

Officers want to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who may have dashcam footage of the incident.
