Pensioner seriously injured after Edinburgh hit-and-run
A pensioner was seriously injured after a hit-and-run in Edinburgh.
The 73-year-old man was crossing the road in Abercromby Place, in the New Town area, when he was struck by a silver-coloured saloon car which failed to stop.
The incident happened at the Dundas Street junction at around 4.10pm on Monday and the car was last seen heading east along Abercromby Place.
The pensioner suffered serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where he remains in a stable condition.
Police Scotland say inquiries into the hit-and-run are ongoing and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
Sergeant Iain Blain, of the Edinburgh Road Policing Unit, said: ``We are pursuing every line of inquiry in relation to this incident and we're eager to trace the driver of this vehicle.
"I urge anyone who can help identify this person to contact police immediately.
"Similarly, if you were in the area of Abercromby Place on Monday afternoon and saw the silver-coloured saloon vehicle then please get in touch.''
