Teenage boy dies in hospital after ‘hit and run’ crash

The incident on Glasgow's Crow Road happened just after midnight.

A teenage boy has died after a hit and run crash on Crow Road in Glasgow.

Emergency services were called to the scene between Anniesland Cross and Southbrae Drive shortly after midnight on Saturday morning.

The 18-year-old was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital but was later pronounced dead.

Police confirmed that the car involved did not stop at the scene.

At around 12.20am, the teenager was struck by a light coloured vehicle, potentially a Mercedes A Class, which continued south on Crow Road.

Sergeant Scott Sutherland from the Road Policing Department said: “This incident has left a young man dead, and it is vital we trace the car involved. The vehicle may have some damage, and appears to have lost the Mercedes badge from its bonnet.

“I would appeal directly to the driver of the vehicle involved, asking them to do the right thing and contact us as a matter of urgency.

“If anyone was in the area at the time, or has dash cam footage showing the crash or vehicle involved, or has any knowledge of the current whereabouts of the vehicle, I urge them to contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting incident number 0120 of September 11, 2021.”

Crow Road was closed in both directions between Anniesland Cross and Southbrae Drive and but reopened shortly before 3pm on Saturday.
