A man has been charged after a man and woman became trapped in a car following a hit-and-run in Falkirk.

The incident, involving a VW Golf GTI and a Volvo V50, happened on Gartcows Road at about 22:00 on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Volvo driver and a 25-year-old woman in the passenger seat had to be freed by firefighters. The woman suffered serious injuries and is in a stable condition in hospital.

A 25-year-old man is due to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court later.

The Volvo driver and a young girl in the back seat of his car suffered minor injuries.
