The driver of a Mercedes-Benz (registration number ADJ 3334), who allegedly sped off after he fatally knocked down a pedestrian, has handed himself over to the police.
The driver killed the pedestrian on New Year’s Day along Princess Road opposite Belvedere Maternity Hospital and the police had been on his trail since the incident.
