Chelsea cyclist dies in alleged hit and run


A woman has died after an alleged hit and run incident in Chelsea involving a cyclist and a ute on 28 March.

The 50-year-old Chelsea woman was riding her bike along the Nepean Highway at around 5.40am when she was allegedly struck by a ute.

Police allege that the driver of the ute fled the scene. A 28-year-old Parkdale man was arrested in Broadmeadows after his car was located in Seaford a little after 8am. He was charged with dangerous driving causing serious injury and failing to render assistance. Those charges are expected to be upgraded. 

The Parkdale man appeared in an out of session’s court hearing on 28 March. He was bailed to appear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 1 August.
