Flowers left by Heathcote residents following the tragic road death of a British tourist on Thursday.


A 23-year-old British man was killed when he was hit by a car on the corner of Victoria Hill Rd and Hospital St, Heathcote, at 6.40pm on Thursday.

He had been in Australia only two weeks and was travelling with his girlfriend.

Heathcote police Leading Senior Constable Jason Peers said the driver, a 46-year-old Melbourne woman, did not appear to be at fault.

‘‘At this stage it appears the victim was lying on the road,’’ Leading Sen. Constable Peers said.

He said visibility was very limited at the accident site at night.

‘‘It’s a really dark intersection at night.’’

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious at this stage, but anyone with further information should contact Leading Senior Constable Pat Allan at Bendigo Highway Patrol on 54481360 or Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
