Murder charges laid over fatal hit and run – South Nowra: Strike Force Altos

Two people will appear in court tomorrow charged with murder over the death of a man in an alleged hit and run at South Nowra last month.

Emergency services responded to Old Southern Road, South Nowra, about 3pm on Thursday 24 February 2022, after reports a man had been hit by a utility.

The utility failed to stop and continued travelling north towards Greenwell Point Road.

The injured 18-year-old man was assisted at the scene by passing motorists until the arrival of NSW Ambulance paramedics. He was taken to Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital but died a short time later.

Officers attached to South Coast Police District attended and established a crime scene. They – with assistance from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad – established Strike Force Altos to investigate the man’s death.

Following extensive inquiries, detectives identified and seized a vehicle – a white Mitsubishi Triton utility – from a Currarong address.

Following further inquiries, investigators arrested an 18-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman at a cabin on Mona Vale Road, Terrey Hills just after 9am today (Thursday 7 April 2022).

The pair were taken to Manly Police Station and charged with murder.

They were refused bail to appear at Manly Local Court tomorrow (Friday 8 April 2022).
