The Aussie Way ...

or, getting your priorities right.
A group in NSW's southwest ignored a man who'd fallen off the back of their ute but they stopped to pick up alcohol that also fell out of the vehicle.

The 31-year-old man, from Rochester in Victoria, died after striking his head on the road when he fell from the vehicle as it turned from Maude Road into Nap Nap Road at the town of Maude, in the early hours of this morning.

The man was one of several passengers in the rear of the ute at the time.

The ute's driver and other passengers did nothing to help him.

But they did stop to pick up cartons of alcohol, which had also fallen from the vehicle, before driving off, police told reporters.

Updated police release, 6 hours later
The driver of the utility, a 26-year-old woman, got out and assisted along with a number of other persons in performing CPR on the injured man. Emergency services personnel were contacted, however, the man died at the scene.

The Toyota Landcruiser utility, which was driven away by unknown people at the time of the incident, has since been seized for forensic and mechanical examination.
