A WOMAN was taken to hospital after a second collision in West Lothian just hours after the M8 crash.

A bus and a Mitsubushi Shogun were involved in the incident on Waverley Crescent, Livingston, at around 7.30pm on Monday.

Two fire engines and an incident support unit from Bathgate went to the scene, alongside a further three appliances from Livingston and West Calder.

Officers from Police Scotland also attended to assist with traffic management, and the road was closed between the Eliburn North and Carmendean roundabouts for around three hours.

The fire service said that there were no reports of anyone being trapped, and one female casualty was described as “walking wounded”.

She was taken to St John’s Hospital in Livingston for precautionary checks.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said that any crash involving a bus is classed as a major collision, due to the size of the vehicle, and additional units are always sent out to assist.
