A woman has been taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle in Aberdeen.
Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 6.30am this morning.
The incident happened outside Kittybrewster school with police closing the road.
A 23-year-old woman was taken to ARI with serious and life-threatening injuries.
Road Policing Inspector Steve Manson said: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision and who hasn’t already spoken to police to come forward.
“I am particularly keen for the occupants of a Silver Audi TT and a White Vauxhall Corsa, who appeared to stop after collision, to come forward.
“They may have information that could help us with our inquiries.
“I would also like to thank drivers in the area this morning, especially parents and children attending Kittybrewster Primary School, for their patience whilst we have been attending to this incident.”
He added: “Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 0516 of November 30. “
A road closure was put in place by officers from the hotel to the St Machar roundabout on Great Northern Road.
Vehicles were unable to travel down nearby roads including Lilybank Place.
Drivers were also stopped from using Great Northern Road, city bound, while police investigated the crash.
