Northern Territory Police are appealing for witnesses to a hit-and-run incident that occurred earlier today in Alice Springs.

At 7am this morning, the Joint Emergency Services Communication Centre received a report of a 31-year-old woman being struck by two vehicles in Larapinta.

A disturbance allegedly occurred in Lyndavale Drive, during which the woman was struck by the first vehicle. The contact caused her to fall to the ground where she was subsequently struck by a second vehicle.
