A three-year-old boy has been seriously injured after being hit by a car in Rosevale Road in Dumfries.
Police said the incident happened at about 15:30 on Saturday after the boy's father stopped his car to speak to a friend.
The toddler, who was a passenger in the car, took off his seatbelt and stepped onto the road.
The boy was struck by a red Peugeot car. Officers have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
The three-year-old is being treated at Glasgow's Yorkhill Hospital, where staff described his condition as "serious but stable".
