Pedestrian 'serious' after Aberdeen crash

A pedestrian was left in a serious condition in hospital after being struck by a car in Aberdeen on New Year's Eve.

The 47-year-old man was hit at 17:10 on South Mount Street near its junction with Rosemount Place in Aberdeen.

He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment. The driver of the car was uninjured.

Grampian Police said the road was closed for about seven hours while investigators carried out an examination of the scene.

Insp Ewan Innes said inquiries were at an early stage.

"There were a number of vehicles and pedestrians in the area at the time and I am aware that some of them may have stopped and assisted following the collision," he said.

"As such I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision to come forward so that we can piece together exactly what happened."
