Off duty nurses tried desperately to save an elderly man after he was hit by a car in Broadbeach yesterday.
The 78-year-old sustained a nasty head injury after getting struck by the vehicle, drive by a teenage girl, as it turned onto Old Burleigh Rd from Albert Avenue around 10am.
He was rushed to hospital by paramedics but sadly passed away a few hours later.
The Forensic Crash Unit's looking into the incident and investigators are calling for anyone who witnessed the crash to get in touch with police.
Meantime, a man in his 40s has died a week after falling off his skateboard in Pimpama.
He suffered a critical head injury in the fall on Aspect St last Sunday, and passed away in hospital over the weekend.
