Police are appealing to trace a nurse who came to the aid of a man who was struck by a van and has been left fighting for his life in hospital.

Emergency services were called to Trinity Crescent in Edinburgh just before 6pm on Wednesday after a collision involving a Citroen Relay and a 59-year-old man.

The man was taken by ambulance to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, where his condition has been described as critical. 

The driver of the van, a 40-year-old man, was arrested and released pending further enquiries.

Police are keen to speak with a potential witness, a female nurse who came to the injured man’s assistance and left prior to police arrival.

Sergeant Paul Ewing said: “Our enquiries into this collision are ongoing and we are thankful to those members of the public who have spoken with officers to date.

“We are looking to speak to a nurse who we understand assisted at the scene, as she may be able to assist our enquiries further.

“If this was you, or you believe you can help identify her, please come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting incident number 2772 of April 10.
