A 90-year-old man has been left fighting for his life after being struck by a car in South Lanarkshire.
The pensioner, who was using a three-wheeled walking aid, was crossing the road when he was hit by a red Ford Kuga at around 9.25am on Friday.
He was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow where medical staff describe his condition as critical.
Police are now appealing for information to the incident that took place on Hamilton’s Leechlee Road, near to Brandon Street.
Constable Gemma Blackadder, Motherwell Road Policing Unit, said: “Although police have spoken to a number of people who assisted at the scene yesterday, we are still keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who may has dash-cam footage from the street at the time.
“Information can be passed to officers at Motherwell Road Policing Unit via 101. “
