A man who fled the scene of a crash that killed a Launceston father has yet to be charged.
The 22-year-old man remained in hospital on Tuesday, with officers still waiting to speak with him.
Police will allege he was disqualified from driving and travelling at more than 100km/h when he ran a red light and crashed into a white Hyundai station wagon at the corner of Wellington and Frederick streets in the early hours of Friday.
The station wagon was being driven by 48-year-old Trevallyn man Adrian Tudor.
The father-of-two died in hospital.
The driver of the red Ford sedan involved in the collision was found by police at Newstead about three hours after the crash.
On Friday, Senior Sergeant Jason Jones said police were “likely to lay charges”, but the driver and a 21-year-old passenger had both been taken to the Launceston General Hospital.
“The passenger received a broken arm, and the male person, who we believe is the driver, received some superficial facial injuries,” Senior Sergeant Jones said.
“It is really tragic and quite disappointing that someone is involved in such a serious accident, and then just flees the scene.”
Investigations into the tragedy are continuing with crash investigators to be back at the scene on Wednesday morning.
Police have warned drivers of possible delays on Wellington Street between 11am and 1pm.
Tributes continue to pour in for Mr Tudor who was a coach and mentor at Westbury Cricket Club and a staff member at Coles where he was working before he was killed.
Anyone with information about the crash should call Launceston Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
