A 54-YEAR-OLD man is currently fighting for his life in Royal Brisbane Women and Children's Hospital with horrifying head injuries after he was struck by a passing car in Victory Heights last night. 

Queensland Police confirm the man attempted to cross along Bath Terrace/Wolvi St just before 8pm last night when he was struck by a passing sedan. 

He received life-threatening injuries in the accident, and while treated on the scene by emergency personnel, the decision was made to airlift him to hospital in Brisbane. 

The driver of the vehicle, a 33-year-old woman, was not injured in the crash.
