A woman using a wheeled walking aid has been left fighting for her life after being struck by a recovery vehicle in South Lanarkshire.
The 65-year-old was crossing Townhead Street in Hamilton when the incident took place at around 1.30pm on Monday.
Emergency services attended and the pensioner was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow where she remains.
Medical staff have described her injuries as life threatening.
Police are now appealing for witnesses.
Sergeant Craig McDonald, Lanarkshire Road Policing, said: “Although we have spoken to a number of people who were at the scene at the time, we are still keen to hear from anyone who was there but who has not yet come forward.
“We are especially keen to hear from motorists with dash-cam footage or from anyone who may have seen the lady, who is well known in the area and who walks with a three wheeled mobility aid, just prior to the collision.
“Officers can be contacted on 101. Please quote reference number 1610 of Monday, 16 August 2021 when calling.”
