Officers were alerted to the two-car collision on Clarkson Road, Broxburn at about 09:15 on Monday.

A spokesperson for the force tweeted the crash was "likely avoidable" had the driver cleared the frost.

A 57-year-old man was charged with a number of offences including dangerous driving.

He will be reported to the procurator fiscal.
