A 29-year-old man has been seriously injured in a road accident near the Queensferry Crossing.
The incident, on the southbound carriageway at around 8.10pm last night, involved a red BMW 3 series. It occurred south of the new bridge at junction 1A and no other vehicle was involved.
The man suffered serious injuries and was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for treatment.
Sergeant Scott Sneddon from the Dalkeith Trunk Roads Policing Group said, “Our investigations into the collision are ongoing and we are reviewing CCTV as well as speaking to a number of witnesses.
“There would have been a number of vehicles on the road at the time and we would urge anyone who hasn’t spoken to us but saw the vehicle prior to the collision, or the incident itself to come forward.”
