POLICE have found an Elwood man after a hit-and-run outside Elwood College.

Children’s crossing supervisor Sue Parsons was taken to hospital with a broken pelvis.

Police said they expected to charge the Elwood man with recklessly causing injury, careless driving and driving in a dangerous manner.

Ms Parsons, 61, from Oakleigh, was hit on Glen Huntly Road at 8.35am on May 10. An ambulance took her to the Alfred Hospital. St Kilda Sergeant Peter Easton said children and parents saw the incident, and a witness gave police a licence plate number.

Ambulance spokesman Paul Bentley said the woman was stable.

South Melbourne Constable Scott Hardy said the man would also be charged with failing to stop his car after the accident, failing to report to police, not giving his name and address and for using a mobile phone while driving.

Point Ormond Ward councillor Jane Touzeau said it was “an extraordinary event” and went beyond a usual general council worker safety issue.

She said students, parents and teachers at Elwood College had taken up a collection to help Ms Parsons.
