Police Scotland is appealing for information after a 17 year-old sustained serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle in Cumbernauld yesterday (Thursday).

Emergency services attended the scene and the man was taken to University Hospital Monklands where medical staff describe his condition as stable.

Sergeant Craig Beaver, Motherwell Road Policing Unit, said: “We are appealing for anyone who was in the area last night who may have witnessed the incident take place, and have not yet spoken to police, or may have seen the Land Rover vehicle beforehand.

“Officers have been checking CCTV, however would also appeal to anyone who was driving in the area last night who may have dash-cam footage that could help us to come forward.”

Anyone with information that could help with enquiries should contact the police via 101.
