A man has appeared in court charged with attempted murder after a male in his 50s was allegedly struck by a car.
Michael Scott appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday over the alleged incident involving a white Skoda Octavia at around 7.30pm on Wednesday on Old Meldrum Road in Bucksburn.
Scott, whose general address was given as Sunderland, faced charges of attempted murder and dangerous driving.
He was also charged with threatening or abusive behaviour and failing to provide a breath sample.
The 34-year-old made no plea and the case was committed for further examination.
He was remanded in custody pending his next court appearance, expected within the next week.
The man was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries following the alleged incident.
It happened near The Staging Post pub before the car, with visible damage to its right-hand side, came to a stop further along the road on the central reservation on the A947.
Officers launched a major investigation, with the road closed for eight hours.
The A947 was shut from the McDonald’s roundabout for crash investigators to examine the scene but reopened at around 4am on Thursday.
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed they had received a call at 8.02pm.
