Car deliberately driven into group of children in Glasgow, police say

A car has been deliberately driven into a group of children in broad daylight in Glasgow, leaving a teenager in a serious condition, police say.

The five youngsters, aged between 12 and 14, were standing on a pavement in Castlemilk, Glasgow at about 3.30pm on Saturday when the incident happened.

They were struck in Stravanan Road by a silver Vauxhall Astra driven by a man who then drove off towards Birgidale Road.

A 14-year-old girl was taken to Hairmyres Hospital where she is in a serious but stable condition.

Three other girls aged 12, 13 and 14, and a 12-year-old boy were treated for minor injuries.

Police said the car was deliberately driven at the group and detectives are now hunting for the driver who they say they will charge with attempted murder.
