A man has been critically injured in a "hit and run" accident in Cringila late Saturday.
Emergency services were called just after 10pm with reports a 24-year-old man had been hit by white Suzuki sedan or hatchback on Lake Avenue.
He had been walking west, near Bethlehem Street, when he was struck by the vehicle.
The Lake Illawarra Police Duty Officer on Sunday confirmed the driver had allegedly left the scene, and the Crash Investigation Unit were looking into it.
The victim suffered critical leg injuries and head injuries, according to a NSW Ambulance spokesman.
A rescue helicopter was tasked to the incident and landed at King George V Oval at Port Kembla.
The victim was airlifted to St George Hospital just before midnight, where he remains in a critical condition.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police, or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
