Conflicting versions of Bowen car v pedestrian incident

BOWEN police are continuing to investigate an incident involving a car and pedestrian that left a man injured.

Paramedics were called to the corner of Horseshoe Bay Rd and Crofton St about 10.25am last Friday.

A man reportedly suffered multiple cuts and bruises but was conscious and alert when paramedics arrived.

Bowen Police Senior Sergeant Craig Shepherd this week said the exact details of the incident remained unknown because of conflicting accounts given to police.
