A truck driver is on the run after ploughing into five pedestrians in central Melbourne.
The truck hit a traffic light and a group of pedestrians near the intersection of City Road and Power Street at Southbank on Thursday night.
Five pedestrians, four men and a woman all believed to be aged in their 20s, suffered lower body injuries in the crash and were taken to hospital.
Two of the men are in a critical condition, while the three other pedestrians are classed as serious but stable.
The truck, possibly a tanker, left the scene via Power Street and police are still searching for the driver.
Police don’t believe there is any ongoing threat to the community.
