A 64 year old man's seriously ill in hospital after being found lying on a road in Paisley town centre.

He was discovered at around quarter to 2 this morning (Sunday) in Neilson Road.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley where staff describe his condition as serious.

Sergeant Mark Miller, Divisional Road Policing Unit, Renfrewshire, said today: "We know from CCTV that the injured man had been in a nearby local pub which he left around 0130 hours. He is then seen five minutes later lying on the road. It is believed from CCTV that he was struck by a vehicle.

"Neilston Road is a busy area - a main route out of Paisley heading towards Barrhead. The local pubs were spilling at the time and I am confident someone will have seen what happened to the man.

"I would stress again that at this time we need to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident, and I am keen to trace the drivers of a white Ford Transit pick-up and a dark saloon car that were seen on CCTV on Neilston Road at the time.

"If you have information that will assist officers with their enquiries, please contact the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Greenock via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence."
