Teenage boy fighting for life after being hit by car on busy road

A 13-year-old boy is in hospital in critical condition after he was hit by a car in Glasgow. And police are appealing for witnesses after the accident, which saw Baltmore Road in the north of the city cordoned off. 

The crash happened about 5.55pm yesterday, when the teenager was struck by a red Toyota Aygo car.

Emergency services attended and he was taken by ambulance to the Royal Hospital for Children, where he remains in a critical condition.

The road was closed for around four hours between Skirsa Street and Ashgill Road for investigations.

Sergeant Nicholas Twigg said: “We are appealing for anyone who was in the area around this time and who witnessed the crash to contact us.

“We are particularly keen to hear from the driver of a white lorry who we believe was in the area around the time of the incident and may be able to assist us.

“I would also ask anyone who was on the road at the time and who may have dashcam footage to get in touch.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference 3122 of May 10.

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 17:49 hours to attend an incident on Balmore Road in Glasgow.

“We dispatched three ambulances and our trauma team to the scene.

“We transported one teenage patient to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.”
