A bar manager suffered serious head injuries after he was hit by a lorry as he tried to hail a taxi.

Scott Murray, who runs Bon Vivant in Thistle Street, Stockbridge, was attempting to cross Leven Street in Tollcross after a night out with friends when he was struck in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The 31-year-old from Canonmills was today being treated in the specialist brain injuries and neuroscience unit at the Western General Hospital, where he underwent surgery last night. It is understood his condition has not deteriorated overnight. He was rushed to Edinburgh Royal Infimary after the collision before being transferred to be treated for suspected blood clots on his brain and behind his eye.
