A man has been left seriously injured after being struck by a car in Forfar.

The 20-year-old was on Glamis Road at its junction with Graham Crescent in the early hours of Tuesday when he was hit by a white Renault Clio.

“If there are any motorists who were in the area around the time of the crash with possible dashcam footage of the area, I would ask that you come forward and speak to officers. 

“Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information should contact police via 101.”
