Police investigations are continuing after a 56-year-old male pedestrian was struck by a car and killed at Figtree on Thursday night.
Emergency services were called to the intersection of the Princes Highway and O'Briens Road, Figtree about 9.30pm.
On Friday morning, Wollongong Police District Acting Inspector Sam Perfrement said the man, from Figtree, was pronounced dead at the scene.
He has not been formally identified.
Claudio Marsala lives across the road from where the accident occurred.
"We were watching TV in the lounge room, and we heard a scream, then we heard a thump," he told the Mercury on Friday.
"When I heard the scream... I ran and got the key to unlock the door.
"By the time I came out, I saw a body lying just there, and it had a pool of blood around it.
"I asked if anybody needed anything. There was already a group of people that had stopped and were helping a woman who was crying.
"Everybody seemed to be around two ladies at the bus stop... The body was just lying in the middle of the road."
Mr Marsala said they tried to call for an ambulance, but couldn't get through straight away.
"Three utes stopped out here," he said. "They must have been tradesmen, and they got tarps and surrounded the body with it.
"One of the guys that got out tried to give first aid."
The 25-year-old male driver was not injured, and was taken to Wollongong Hospital for mandatory testing.
Initial tests revealed he had tested negative for alcohol.
Inspector Perfrement said the 56-year-old had been with other people at the time of the accident, with initial reports indicating he had not been in the middle of the road at the time.
"(It's) something that's traumatic for the families, for all those involved, including police and other emergency services," he said.
He urged road users to "remain vigilant and take care on the roads".
Officers from Wollongong Police District continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the fatal accident.
Inspector Perfrement said it was unknown at this stage whether speed was a factor in the incident.
Police have urged any witnesses, or anyone with dashcam vision of the crash to come forward.
