A man is still fighting for his life three days after a crash in Sheffield.

The 37-year-old pedestrian was involved in a collision with a car in the Gleadless area of the city on Saturday (June 10) at around 9.40pm.

Police said this morning he remains in a critical condition.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to the crash in Ridgeway Road, close to the junction with Gleadless Road, which they said reportedly involved a black Hyundai i20.

A witness has told how she got off a tram at the nearby Gleadless Townend stop to help after hearing an 'almighty bang'.

She praised an off-duty doctor and nurse who she says were among the first to tend to the man.

"A doctor stopped and moved him into a better position and held his head back, and then a nurse came on a motorbike and helped," said Christine Wilson, a 56-year-old dinner lady from Renishaw.

"They were fantastic. I don't know what we would have done without them. I just hope the man is OK."

Another witness has previously told how he had seen the man's fiancee, who said they are due to be married this summer, in despair at the side of the road.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident number 1230 of June 10.
