Police Treating Hit & Run As Attempted Murder
A 14-year-old boy is in hospital after he and a friend were targeted in a hit-and-run.
Police are treating the incident, in which a car mounted the pavement in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, as attempted murder.
The injured teenager and another boy aged 15 were walking along Fernhill Road at around 2.15pm on Sunday when the light green Vauxhall Corsa veered towards them.
The younger boy was hit and is being treated at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where he is in a stable condition.
The vehicle was recovered a short time later in Scarrel Gardens in Castlemilk.
Detective Constable Martin McKendrick said: "Thankfully the victim was not badly injured, but this was a deliberate and very dangerous act which could have had far more serious consequences and we need to trace those responsible immediately.
"I would appeal to anyone who was on Fernhill Road around the time of the incident and witnessed what happened to get in touch.
"I would also ask anyone living in the Castlemilk area near to where the vehicle was recovered who saw anything suspicious to contact police.''
