Further appeal following Edinburgh City Bypass hit-and-run
Road Policing officers are continuing to investigate a hit-and-run crash which took place on the Edinburgh City Bypass at the weekend.
The incident took place shortly after 1.15am on Sunday, 3 October, on the A720 westbound near the Lothianburn Junction.
A 31-year-old man had stopped his Volkswagen car on the on-slip road to repair a puncture when he was struck by a vehicle.
This vehicle, which enquiries indicate was a white Audi A4 or S4, failed to stop and continued on the City Bypass in the direction of the Dreghorn Junction.
The man was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for treatment to serious injuries.
Inspector Roger Park, from Edinburgh City Road Policing Unit, said: “Our investigation into this crash indicate that the vehicle involved is now believed to be a white Audi A4 or S4. It would have obvious collision damage to the front bodywork.
“We are asking for anyone who believes they may have seen a vehicle matching this description or something similar to get in touch.
“We would also be keen to speak to anyone who was on the City Bypass early on Sunday morning and may have dashcam footage to come forward.
“Anyone with information can call 101, quoting incident 0282 of 3 October.”
