Five youths taken to hospital after being hit by a car

Five youths said to be ‘teenagers’ or ‘kids’ have been taken to hospital after they were hit by a car in Glasgow.

Their exact ages and injuries have not yet been detailed.

Emergency services were scrambled to Provanmill Road, in the Blackhill area of the city, at 5.40pm today after they were hit by the vehicle.

The five have been taken to hospital and a 34-year-old man is being questioned in connection with the incident.

One resident told The Sun: ‘There’s quite a lot of children been injured. It’s a horrible, horrible incident.

‘I didn’t see them getting hit. All I heard was a big bang.

‘I looked about and seen the kids were strewn all over the car park. Then I ran down.’

‘It’s a shame. They were teenagers,’ they added.
