The incident happened around 8.45 p.m. on Saturday April 1 on B7015 Stoneyburn to Livingston Road, around 200 metres east of the junction with Happy Valley Road.

Anyone who can assist with this investigation is asked to come forward.

The vehicle involved is described only as being a small white car.

“If you are the driver of a small white car, which was on the B7015 at around 8.45 p.m. on Saturday evening then please contact police immediately.

“In addition, anyone with any further information relevant to this inquiry should also get in touch.”
