POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a trolley collector was allegedly hit by a car in the Rose City Shoppingworld carpark.

Ethan Sullivan was pushing a line of trolleys through the underground carpark at 11am on Saturday.

"I was pushing trolleys and I stopped for a second and the next thing I remember is that a guy was helping me up off the ground and told me I was hit by a car," Mr Sullivan said.

Having been in Warwick about four weeks, it was only Mr Sullivan's second shift.

He said the man who had helped him up had told him the person who had allegedly hit him was an elderly woman in a blue car.

Mr Sullivan said he could not remember what happened.

The ambulance was then called and Mr Sullivan was taken to Warwick Hospital where he was kept overnight.

He suffered no major injuries aside from some bruising.

Mr Sullivan hoped to return to work as soon as he was deemed fit enough.

He said he would like for whoever hit him to come forward.

"It's pretty low and inconsiderate to drive off," he said.

"People stop for dogs, but I guess they don't for humans."

A Warwick Police spokesman said they were appealing for the man who witnessed the incident, and any other witnesses, to come forward to help with their investigation.

"Police want to speak with that particular person who approached him to see what happened," the spokesman said.

If you have any information about the incident, contact Warwick Police on 4660 4444.
