A man is in a stable condition in Wellington Hospital  after he was struck by a car as he was crossing the road at Paraparaumu Beach.

Emergency Services were called to the incident on the Kapiti Coast shortly after 2pm yesterday.

A Wellington Free Ambulance spokeswoman said the man, who was hit by a car travelling down Marine Parade, was taken to Wellington Hospital.

Kapiti police said the 55-year-old was hit while crossing the road.

It was thought he may have stepped out in front of the car, which stopped when the driver realised someone had been hit.

A Wellington Hospital spokesman said this morning the man was in a stable condition.
