A MAN has been charged in relation to a hit and run that left a man dead in Dingley Village last year.
On 20 December 2019, around 4.30am, a man’s body was spotted by a passerby on Spring Road. Emergency services attended but the 53-year-old man from Dingley Village had died at the scene.
A few days later, a 19-year-old Dandenong South man handed himself into police and was charged with culpable driving, dangerous driving causing death, and fail to stop and render assistance. Last week a second man was arrested by police.
On 6 May a 19-year-old Diamond Creek man was also charged with culpable driving, dangerous driving causing death, fail to stop, and fail to render assistance. He was bailed to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 11 May.
Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are handling the investigation.
