A 34-year-old man has been charged following an alleged serious assault involving a car in Aberdeen.
The move came after a man in his 50s was allegedly struck by a white Skoda Octavia at around 7.30pm on Wednesday on Old Meldrum Road in Bucksburn.
He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.
The incident occurred 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 then launched a major investigation, with the road closed for around eight hours.
Detective Inspector Stewart Drummond said: “I would once again like to thank those who have assisted with our investigation.
“Our inquiries are ongoing and I would still urge anyone with information to contact us on 101 quoting incident number 3735 of July 11.
“If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
A passerby, who witnessed the incident, said she saw the car mount the central reservation.
She said: “I noticed the car was staying in the middle of the road and I could see it was badly damaged on its right side.”
The woman said she waited at the scene until the police arrived.
The A947 was closed from the McDonald’s roundabout for crash investigators to examine the scene but reopened at around 4am yesterday.
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 8.02pm to attend a road traffic accident on Old Meldrum Road, Bucksburn.
“We dispatched two ambulances to the scene and a male patient was transported to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
