A young man from Bathgate has been killed after his car collided with a lorry on the M8.
The 19-year-old, who has not been named, died at the scene after his Fiat Stilo crashed with a MAN HGV around one mile east of Harthill, at around 1am on Friday, March 30.
There are reports the car was travelling west on the eastbound carriageway, having joined it at junction 3A, before it collided with the HGV, which was heading east.
Inspector Richard Latto said: "At the moment we are working to establish the circumstances leading up to this collision, and would appeal for anyone who may have been in the area at the time, and who may have seen what happened, to contact police on 0131 311 3131."
The eastbound carriageway of the M8 was closed between junction five, Shotts, and junction four, Whitburn, for around five hours while investigations were carried out at the scene. One lane reopened around 6am, with the full carriageway reopened about 8.50am.
