A man has been rushed to hospital following a car crash so severe that it caused a car to overturn into a nearby garden.
A beige Volkswagen Golf was being driven east on Ravelston Dykes Road, at the junction with Murrayfield Road in Edinburgh at around 1.25pm on Thursday December 2.
However, the car then collided with a white Citroen C3 before dramatically overturning and coming to rest in the garden.
We previously told how one of the vehicles burst into flames with three fire engines deployed and eventually extinguished the blaze at the scene.
The driver and sole occupant of the Golf, a 61-year-old man, was extricated from the vehicle and taken to hospital for treatment.
His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, while the driver of the Citroen was uninjured.
The road was closed until 5.10pm to allow for the vehicle to be recovered from the scene of the crash.
Sergeant Jill Kirkpatrick from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit based in Edinburgh said: “I’d like to thank those members of the public who came to assist the driver at the scene and provided immediate attention to him prior to the arrival of emergency services.
“We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash, particularly the VW Golf before it collided with the Citroen, and anyone who could have dash-cam footage of the incident is asked to provide this to us as soon as possible.”
Those with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 1578 of 2 December 2021.
