Police are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian died following a collision with a car.
He was struck by a Mercedes Benz A-Class as it emerged from St Margaret Street car park on to St Margaret Street at around 9.50pm on Wednesday.
Police want to speak to any witnesses, in particular one who spoke to the driver just after the accident.
One driver who stopped to help urged others who saw anything and who might be able to assist the investigation to contact the police.
Ruari Murphy said it was “one of the worst things I’ve ever had to see in my life.”
He said potential witnesses who might have been able to help left the scene and urged them to come forward.
“I arrived just shortly after it happened and the sight that I saw will never leave me,” he said.
Hannah Strachan, 32, who lives nearby, returned home just moments after the collision.
She said: “I just missed it and I’m thankful. There were at least three police cars, ambulances and two fire engines.
“The road was closed for a long time, at least until around 12.30am.”
It is understood a woman who was driving the car was taken away in an ambulance.
Police asked anyone with information to contact them by dialling 101.
Sergeant Nicola Young, of the road policing unit, said: “We’re appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this to contact us.
“We’re also specifically appealing to a person who spoke to the driver just after the incident happened.”
