(CNS) UPDATED: A pedestrian is in a critical condition after being knocked down on Shedden Road Tuesday night, following a fight at a bar in central George Town. The police say the man was injured during the altercation between several men one of which had a machete before he fled into the street, near Martin Drive, and was hit by a car at around 9:45pm. Police have not yet said if they believe the driver of the car was also involved in the earlier brawl and whether or not he intended to hit the victim, who remains in hospital. A 46-year-old man turned himself in at the police station at around 8:40am, but no details of any arrest have been released.

Officers closed the road between Eastern Avenue and Mary Street, causing traffic congestion during the morning’s commute but it reopened shortly after 8:30am.
