A pedestrian has died after being struck by a van on the M8 in West Lothian.
The incident involving a white Peugeot Boxer van occurred on the eastbound motorway between junctions 4 and 3a, near Bathgate, at around 6.20pm on Tuesday.
Emergency services attended and a 33-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The road was closed for around seven hours to allow a full collision investigation to take place.
Sergeant Andrew Trotter said: “Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of those involved in this incident.
“We are currently conducting inquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the crash and are appealing to members of the public who may have any information that could help with our investigation.
“The road would have been busy with other motorists at the time and I would ask if you witnessed the collision or have any information that you contact officers.
“I would also ask if you have any dashcam footage of the area that you come forward and speak to police.”
