A pedestrian who was badly injured when she was knocked down in Edinburgh was on holiday from Italy, it has emerged.

The 33-year-old suffered two broken ribs and a punctured lung after being struck by a grey Toyota people carrier on Monday on Queensferry Road.

The incident took place between Clermiston and Drumbrae at about 21:35

The woman remains in a stable condition in hospital. It is understood she was on the pavement when she was knocked down.

Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses to the incident, and are especially keen to trace the driver of a dark silver coupe, similar to a Toyota Celica or MR2, which was seen travelling northbound on Queensferry Road at the time of the incident.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "We believe that the driver of this car may hold information that can assist our inquiries, and we would urge them to contact police as soon as possible.

"Similarly, anyone else who witnessed the incident should also get in touch."
