Charges from wheelchair hit-run

05 Dec 2018

An Altona North man is facing court charged with failing to stop after driving into wheelchair-bound Judeland Anthony in Bourke St, Docklands on October 30.

23-year-old Jake Pedersen is facing a number of offences following the incident.

Police allege Mr Pedersen drove down Bourke St, near Seafarers Lane, in a rented blue Ford when he crashed into the victim.

They say Mr Pedersen abandoned the car on LaTrobe St near the intersection of King St.

He was initially charged with failing to stop and render assistance at the scene of an accident and other traffic offences.

The Age reported that Mr Pedersen was also charged with using a false document to rent a car from the Royal Automotive Club of Victoria the day before the crash.

Court documents also show Mr Pedersen was a learner driver. He was due to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court for a mention on November 30.
