A South Australian driver has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly deliberately struck a pedestrian then assaulted the man.

Police say the 36-year-old accused, from Renmark, hit a man who walking alongside the Sturt Highway at Monash about 10am on Monday on purpose.

They allege he then got out of his vehicle and inflicted serious injuries to the 34-year-old victim, who has no fixed address and was rushed to Berri Hospital before being flown to Adelaide for treatment.
