Police Scotland, in Aberdeen, are appealing for information after a pedestrian was struck by a car in the centre of the city.
The incident happened at approximately 14:30 on Monday, 25 November 2019.
Powis Terrace at the junction with Bedford Road next to the traffic lights was the scene of the crime.
A 66-year old man was hit by the car, which failed to stop. Passers-by went to the aid of the man and he was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by the Scottish Ambulance where he remains in a serious condition with leg and chest injuries.
Officers are appealing to witnesses who may have seen what happened.
A grey Lexus IS car, registration number SC06 XEL, struck the pedestrian and carried on towards the St. Machar area.
The Lexus was also seen a short time later in the Ashill Drive area of Aberdeen where it was abandoned after four men were seen leaving the vehicle. It has been recovered by police and enquiries are ongoing to trace the driver and occupants.
Road Policing Inspector Steve Manson, said:
“It appears that the Lexus was being driven erratically prior to the incident and after being involved in the collision with the pedestrian it failed to stop. The pedestrian suffered serious injuries and the driver made no attempt to stop and check on him. We are appealing for anyone who saw the collision, or saw the Lexus before or after the incident, to get in touch. In particular, if you have dash-cam footage that can assist our enquiries then please contact us."
