Christchurch police are appealing for witnesses to a hit-and-run incident in Phillipstown.
The incident occurred around four this morning at the corner of Tuam Street and Nursery Road.
Two male pedestrians were walking on Nursery Road towards Ferry Road, when one was hit by a vehicle coming from behind them.
The second man narrowly avoided being hit.
Detective Sergeant Richard Quested says the pedestrian has a broken hip and has been treated at Christchurch Hospital.
Police are looking for a car described as a dark coloured vehicle, possibly a Honda Civic, with one occupant.
The wing mirror believed to be from the left hand side of the vehicle was found at the scene.
