Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was alleged to have been deliberately hit by a car and badly injured in Aberdeen.
The incident happened near the Staging Post pub on Old Meldrum Road, Bucksburn, at about 19:30 on Wednesday.
The man, who is in his 50s, was hit by a white Skoda Octavia. He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with "serious" injuries.
Police said a 34-year-old man had been arrested over the incident.
Det Insp Stewart Drummond said: "The area would have been busy at the time and we are urging anyone who was around to contact us.
"We have spoken to a number of people so far and will continue with this today.
"I'd like to thank the public for their patience with the road closure while we carried out necessary inquiries."
