A driver has been charged after a pedestrian was struck by a car in Llandilo.

About 10.50pm last night, emergency services were called to Fifth Avenue, Llandilo, after reports a man was allegedly struck by a Ford Focus while walking down the street.

The 41-year-old pedestrian suffered head and leg injuries and was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics, before being taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Officers from Nepean Police Area Command established a crime scene, which was examined by specialist police from the Crash Investigation Unit.

The provisional driver, a 19-year-old man, was subjected to a roadside breath test, which returned a negative result.

He was arrested and taken to Nepean Hospital for mandatory testing before being taken to Penrith Police Station.

Following inquiries, the Emu Heights man was charged with ‘dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm (drive manner dangerous)’ and ‘negligent driving (occasioning grievous bodily harm)’. His licence was also suspended.

He was granted conditional bail and is due to appear before Penrith Local Court on Tuesday, July 14.
