A 95-year-old woman has been left with a fractured hip after being knocked down by a van.
She was walking along Strathearn Road in Marchmont, Edinburgh at around 5.15pm on Tuesday when a van pulled out of the Farmer Autocare centre and hit her.
The red Volkswagen Transporter was travelling at a very slow speed and the driver was unharmed.
A member of the public went to help the elderly lady, who was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to be treated for a fractured hip.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to the accident and want to speak to the member of the public who helped.
A police spokesperson said: "Due to the time of day, Strathearn Road would have been busy with cars and pedestrians and someone may well have witnessed this incident.
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who saw anything to get in touch as a matter of urgency.
"Officers are also particularly keen to trace a woman who stopped to help the injured party just after the incident but left prior to police arrival."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lothian and Borders Police immediately on 0131 311 3131 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
