Car pulled over, driver arrested months after CBD peak hour hit-run

A man has been charged almost three months after allegedly speeding through Melbourne's CBD in a stolen car, injuring a pedestrian and fleeing from the scene of the crash.

The hit-run during peak hour on June 26 on A'Beckett Street in the CBD left the pedestrian with serious but non-life threatening injuries after the car hit a traffic light, which fell on the man.

Detectives on Tuesday intercepted a car in North Melbourne and arrested a 28-year-old man in relation to the incident.

He has been charged with a number of offences including conduct endangering life, driving in a manner dangerous, recklessly causing injury, traffic-related offences and other "unrelated matters".

He will face court on Wednesday.

Police say the allegedly stolen vehicle was on Flinders Street when police tried to intercept it about 5pm.

A short time later, the car allegedly struck two vehicles in William Street and another two on A’Beckett Street.

It then hit a parked car before colliding with a vehicle and traffic light, which hit a male pedestrian.

The male driver allegedly fled the scene on foot.

Two other people were assessed at the scene but both refused to be transported to hospital and were in a stable condition.
