An e-scooter rider was found with ‘serious’ mystery injures in Edinburgh sparking a police investigation.
Emergency services raced to the scene after a witness found the hurt 40-year-old man on Ferniehill Road at around 12.15am this morning.
He had been riding an electric scooter before being hospitalised with a serious, but not life threatening, head injury.
Police are now appealing for information that may help them find out what happened to the victim.
Police Constable James Lamb from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit based in Edinburgh said: “First and foremost we are seeking to understand how the man became injured.
“He suffered a head injury and was found in the eastbound lane of Ferniehill Road, just off Gilmerton Road, near to the junction with Ferniehill Avenue.
“I would ask anyone in the Moredun and Gilmerton areas who may have seen a man riding an e-scooter late last night, or any properties who may have private CCTV covering the area, to check their systems to see if this can help our enquiries.
“Similarly any drivers in the area who may have seen the rider prior to him being found injured, and especially if recording with dash cam, should provide any relevant information or footage to officers as soon as possible.”
Those with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 0019 of 3 February.
An anonymous report can be given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
