‘Do the right thing’: Driver hunted after fatal hit-and-run Police ScotlandSNS Group

Police are on the hunt for a Nissan driver following a fatal hit-and-run in West Lothian two weeks ago.

George Robertson, 53, was hit by a vehicle that failed to stop on the B792 Bathgate to Torphichen road at around 10.50pm on Sunday, September 20.

Mr Robertson, who was on his way home, died at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary a short time later.

Police Scotland said “extensive enquiries” are ongoing, with officers now looking to trace a dark-coloured Nissan Qashqai in connection with the incident.

Inspector Peter Houston said: “Two weeks on from when George Robertson died, we are still looking for answers, and I am reiterating my appeal for any information at all which could help our investigation.

“We are looking to trace a dark-coloured Nissan Qashqai, which we know was on the road around the time of the incident and would urge anyone who may have seen this car to get in touch.

“George’s death has left his family absolutely devastated and they have stated it is now time for someone to act.  

“Somebody out there knows who was driving the vehicle involved and I would implore that person to do the right thing and come forward.”
