It is absolutely vital that anyone who witnessed what happened comes forward and assists with the investigation.
“Livingston North train station is also nearby and I would appeal to any pedestrians who were in the surrounding area, who may have noticed a white car driving at speed, to please get in touch. I would also encourage any motorists with dash-cams to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance.
