An elderly man has died in hospital days after he was hit by a car while crossing a road in South Lanarkshire.

The 90-year-old man was using a three-wheeled walker as he crossed Leechlee Road in Hamilton, near to Brandon Street, at around 9.25am on Friday when he was hit by a red Ford Kuga.

The pedestrian was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow and was in a critical condition over the weekend.

Police confirmed the pensioner had died on Tuesday and inquiries into the incident are continuing.
