Woman injured in road collision – Bongo Club to get new base – Our n0tice project – Dads Rock – Submit your story


Police in Edinburgh are appealing for witnesses after an 82-year-old woman was injured in a road collision that happened yesterday  afternoon.

The incident happened around 4.35pm, outside the Murrayfield Dental Practice in Corstorphine Road.

The woman was walking outside the practice when she was involved in a collision with a green Mini Cooper that was exiting the premises.   She was knocked to the ground and suffered a fractured hip, and is currently receiving treatment at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131.
