Man from US dies in hospital after being hit by van

A 58-year-old man from Philadelphia has died in hospital after being hit by a van in Edinburgh on Wednesday 10 April.

Police have named the man as Dr William Noel.

He was walking on Trinity Crescent at about 17:50 when he was struck by a white Citroen Relay van.

He was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where he died from his injuries on Monday evening.

The driver of the van, a 40-year-old man, was arrested and released pending further inquiries.

Police previously appealed for a female nurse who came to Dr Noel’s aid but left before the police arrived to come forward. She has since assisted with inquiries.

Anyone with information should contact police.
