Police are appealing for witnesses following a collision between a pedestrian and a van in north Bristol at the weekend.

The incident was reported at about 11:35pm on Saturday (1st December) when a Royal Mail lorry was in collision with a pedestrian on the A38 at Patchway.

The vehicle was travelling in the direction of Aztec West, heading towards Bristol, when the collision occurred.

The pedestrian – a 20-year-old man – was seriously injured in the collision and was taken to Frenchay Hospital, where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Collision investigators are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, or immediately before the collision occurred, who may have information to help their enquiries.

Anyone able to help is asked to contact the collision investigation unit on the force number 101 or online via the crime reporting page on the Avon and Somerset Police website.

    Hope the injured recover.

    My Wife and I have always worried about the speed those vans travel at when they emerge from their depot and hit the A38.

    Hope they slow down now.

    Not good.

    Surely in Patchway, one is *either* heading to Aztec West *or* towards Bristol, not both?
