School Pupil, 9, Hurt After Being Hit By Car
A nine-year-old boy is in hospital after being hit by a car outside a primary school.
The child was struck by a blue Toyota Yaris near Haghill Primary on Cumbernauld Road in the Riddrie area of Glasgow at about 8.30am.
Emergency services attended and the boy was taken by ambulance to the city's Royal Hospital for Children, where he is receiving treatment for a broken leg and elbow.
The boy, a pupil at Haghill Primary, is said to be in a stable condition.
The road was closed for several hours while officers carried out their investigations at the scene. The 30-year-old man driving the car was uninjured.
Constable Debbie Hay has appealed for anyone who witnessed the crash to contact her on 101.
She said: "The area of Cumbernauld Road was very busy with commuters and parents dropping their children at the nearby primary school, so I would appeal to anyone who was in that area at the time of the crash to contact us as you may have information which could assist with our ongoing inquiries.''
A spokeswoman for Glasgow City Council said: "Unfortunately a pupil was involved in a road traffic incident outside the school this morning.
"The school is helping the police with their inquiries.''
