A man has been taken away in an ambulance after he was hit by a car on the Princes Highway at Unanderra on Wednesday afternoon.

It is believed the man had gone to get takeaway food and was returning to his truck, which was parked out the front of Unanderra Community Centre, when he was hit by a car in the southbound lanes.

The driver of the car involved, Ivan, told the Mercury he braked in an attempt to avoid a collision but estimates he was travelling at 50km/h on impact.

“I’m just a bit shocked,” said Ivan.

“He (the pedestrian) stood up and said ‘I’m alright’ [then] he laid on the grass. I hope he’s okay,” he said.

NSW Ambulance paramedics took the pedestrian away a short time ago.

He’s understood to have suffered a leg injury.
