A woman has been left seriously injured after being struck by a car in a hit and run in West Lothian.
The 28-year-old was on Deans Road in Livingston at around 11.50am on Wednesday when she was hit by a small car with learning plates attached that failed to stop.
Emergency services attended and the injured woman was taken to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for treatment.
Medical staff have described her injuries as “serious but not life threatening” as police launch an appeal to trace the driver.
Sergeant Scott Kirkpatrick, of Police Scotland’s Livingston Road Policing Unit, said: “Thankfully the woman involved has not sustained life threatening injuries as a result of this crash and we are appealing to the public to help trace the driver responsible.
“The road runs near to an industrial estate and the car involved had learning plates attached to the vehicle. I am asking anyone who was in the area or has any information that could assist with our enquiries to come forward and speak to officers.
“I would also ask if there are any other motorists with possible dashcam footage that may help with our investigation to contact police.”
