Two pedestrians have suffered serious injuries after being pinned against the wall of a building by a reversing car.
A man and woman, both in their 40s, were taken to Borders General Hospital after the incident outside the George and Abbotsford Hotel in Melrose.
The 81-year-old car driver was given oxygen and then taken to hospital.
Police said investigations were continuing and are appealing for witnesses to the accident which happened at about 11:00 on Friday.
The male pedestrian was later transferred to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Insp Richard Latto said: "This was a very serious road collision that took place on a busy High Street where there would have been a number of shoppers around.
"We are making all attempts to establish the full circumstances in relation to this collision, and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who witnessed the incident to get in touch."
