A man has been charged in connection with road traffic offences after “losing control” of a car which went on to strike eight youths.
Police were called to reports of a crash on Provanmill Road in the Blackhill area of Glasgow at around 5.40pm on Monday evening.
Footage posted on social media on Monday showed emergency services in attendance at the scene and crowds of people gathered on the pavement.
