POLICE are appealing for information after a man was seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident in Darnley at the weekend.

The 33-year-old man was crossing Nitshill Road at its junction with Darnley Mains Road, near to a Sainsbury’s store, at around 4.35pm on Saturday when he was struck by a Seat Ibiza.

The car failed to stop and continued westbound towards Nitshill.

Members of the public were able to help the injured man until emergency services arrived at the scene.

He was then taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, in Glasgow, where hospital staff described his condition as serious.

Police enquiries are continuing to trace the car and its driver. The vehicle is thought to be a black or dark-coloured 2018 Seat Ibiza. It is likely to have damage to its front driver’s side wing, headlight and bumper.

A wing mirror came off during the collision.

Sergeant Kenneth Canavan, of the Greater Glasgow Road Policing Unit, said: “Nitshill Road at Darnley Mains Road is a busy junction for both traffic and pedestrians. I would appeal to anyone who saw the crash happen or has dashcam footage to come forward.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who knows of a relatively new dark-coloured Seat car that is damaged, possibly missing a door mirror or no longer parked at the usual place.

"Any information on this would greatly assist our investigation.

“Anyone with information can contact the road policing department via 101. Please quote incident number 2,793 of December 1 when calling.”
