Man hit by car at Nimbin suffers fractured leg

A MAN is recovering in hospital with a fractured leg after running out in front of a car at Nimbin in the early hours of this morning.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said paramedics were called to Nimbin at 1.30am after reports of a crash involving a car and pedestrian.

When they arrived at the scene paramedics treated a man, believed to be in his early 30s, for injuries to his lower leg.

Police confirmed they were called to Sibley Street, Nimbin, about 1.30am to investigate the incident.

A police spokesman said the man reportedly ran out onto Sibley St in front of a moving car that swerved to try and avoid him.

The driver of the car was tested at the scene and not found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Police are waiting for blood and urine testing results for the pedestrian, who was taken to Lismore Base Hospital by ambulance in a stable condition.
