Pedestrian remains in a critical condition.

A YOUNG man remains in a critical condition in hospital after he was struck by a van in Coventry last week.

Emergency services were called to the scene near to the Unicorn working men's club in Holbrook Lane at around 11.40pm last Thursday.

The man, who is in his 20s, suffered serious head injuries.

Police believe there may have been an altercation before the incident.

He still remains in a critical condition.

Det Sgt Jonathan Fanti, from West Midlands Police, said last week: "We are appealing for anyone with information that could assist the investigation to come forward to help us piece together what took place on Thursday night.

"We have spoken to a number of witnesses already but are keen to hear from anyone who has not yet spoken to us to get in touch."

The white transit-style van reversed into the victim, who was treated for a head injury at the scene before being taken to University Hospital in Walsgrave.

An ambulance service spokesman said: "West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls to reports of a car which had reversed, colliding with a pedestrian, on Holbrook Lane at 11.45pm.

"Ambulance staff arrived to find a pedestrian, a man, who had sustained a potentially serious head injury following a collision with a vehicle.

"Ambulance staff and the doctor on board the critical care car quickly worked to stabilise his condition by administering advanced trauma care at the scene.

"The man was then taken by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital for further treatment."
