Man (48) dies after being hit by car in Yangebup

A 48-year-old man died after being struck by a car in Yangebup overnight.

Police said a grey 2014 Suzuki Swift was travelling south on Stock Road just after 7.30pm when it collided with the man near Beeliar Drive.

The pedestrian died at the scene.

The 25-year-old female driver was not injured.

Police believe the victim may have been at a Munster home where an alleged case of domestic violence had taken place about 15 minutes prior to being killed.

Police said they were called to a Shelley Way property about 7.20pm following reports of a disturbance at a home on the street.

“A family and domestic violence incident had occurred which resulted in a 22-year-old woman being injured,” a police spokeswoman said.

“She was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and Fremantle Detectives are investigating the incident.

“It is believed a person who was at the home during this incident was later a victim of a fatal crash on Stock Road in Yangebup which Major Crash officers are investigating.”

Anyone with any information can call Crime Stoppers or to make a report online.
