A young woman is fighting for her life after she was struck by a car outside a primary school in Aberdeen.
The 23-year-old was hit by a red Ford Focus near Kittybrewster Primary School on Great Northern Road, Aberdeen at around 6.25am on Friday.
Emergency services attended and the injured woman was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with life threatening injuries.
Police are now investigating the incident and officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
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 enquiries.
"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.
"The road will remain closed for the time being whilst we carry out our investigations. I would urge all HGV drivers to avoid the area and to use an alternative route through the city for the moment.
"Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101."
The road to Burnett Place has been closed while investigations are carried out and diversions are in place.
