A man was “dragged along the street” by a car during a hit and run incident in West Lothian.

Emergency services were called to Queens Crescent, Livingston, after a man was found lying seriously injured at around 10.55pm on Friday.

Early enquiries indicate that the man was standing beside a white car, before it left the scene at speed, dragging the 46-year-old along the street “by some distance”.

He was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where he is receiving treatment for a serious leg injury.

Officers are asking for anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident to get in touch.

Detective constable Watson from Livingston CID said: “Queens Crescent is a busy residential street and there would have been a considerable amount of noise and commotion around the time of the incident.

“It is absolutely vital that anyone who witnessed what happened comes forward and assists with the investigation.

“Livingston North train station is also nearby and I would appeal to any pedestrians who were in the surrounding area, who may have noticed a white car driving at speed, to please get in touch.

“I would also encourage any motorists with dash-cams to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance.

“Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting incident number 4675 of Friday, September 22, 2023. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
