THE drivers of two vehicles have been urged to come forward as police enquiries into a serious Borders crash continue

A 60-year-old woman remains in a critical condition after sustaining serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle last weekend.

At around 9.50pm on Sunday, March 12 near Borders General Hospital on the A6091 Melrose bypass the woman was hit by a vehicle which failed to stop, leaving her "seriously injured".

Officers are working to establish the full circumstances around the incident.

Chief Inspector Vinnie Fisher, Local Area Commander, said: “I would like to thank everyone who has come forward so far and spoken to officers. Thanks to them we have managed to eliminate a number of vehicles from our investigation.

“But it is vital that we do trace those involved. A woman has been seriously injured and she and her family deserve to know what has happened.

“Officers held a road check at the location of the crash on Sunday (March 19), a week on from the crash and again I want to say thank you to everyone who spoke to us and passed on information.

“An examination of CCTV shows there are a number of vehicles driving in the area at the time whose owners or drivers have not yet come forward and I am urging them to do so.

“You may be unaware of having been involved in the crash, but if you were there is likely to be damage to your vehicle. I cannot stress enough how important it is that if you were driving in the area around 9.50pm on Sunday, 12 March, 2023, you check your car now and speak to us even if it is to report no damage."

Officers are continuing their appeal for the drivers of "a dark-coloured SUV and a 4x4" to come forward as they may have vital information on the crash.

Drivers of vehicles described in a previous appeal have come forward and have spoken with officers, eliminating them from ongoing enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 3303 of Sunday, March 12, 2023.
