Police said about 9:40pm on December 20, the ute was seen driving erratically in a northerly direction on Tharwa Drive.
Two men were walking across the Mentone View crossing when one of them was hit by the Landcruiser, which didn’t stop.

The Landcruiser is believed to be an early model light coloured ute with a back tray.
