A girl (14) has been left in serious condition after a car deliberately drove into a group of children in Glasgow yesterday afternoon.
The BBC reports that the incident occurred at Stravanan Road at 3:30pm yesterday as the teenagers, aged between 12 and 14, were standing on a pavement outside shops in Castlemilk.
A man driving a silver Vauxhall Astra struck the children, hitting five of them. He then drove off towards Birgidale Road. Police say that there was another man in the car along with the driver.
The other children; three girls aged 12, 13 and 14, and one boy aged 12, were treated for minor injuries.
The incident is being treated as attempted murder, with the BBC reporting that there is no suggestion that the act was terrorism-related.
Detective Inspector Peter Sharp says that officers “are following a number of lines of enquiry.”
Investigations are ongoing.Tags:
