Investigation after man hurt by police car in Glasgow

An investigation is under way into how a police car hit a man in Glasgow while responding to an emergency call.

The marked vehicle struck the pedestrian on Ardmay Crescent, in the city's King's Park area, at about 23:30 on Saturday 24 August.

The Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) is now seeking witnesses to the incident.

The injured man was taken to the Victoria Infirmary after being struck. His injuries were not life-threatening.

The Police Investigations and Review Commissioner said: "The marked police car was one of several police vehicles responding to an emergency call and it is understood that a number of people witnessed the incident and they may have information that could help the investigation.

"Police Scotland referred the incident to the PIRC because the man sustained an injury following contact with the police.

"Following an initial assessment, the commissioner will now undertake an independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident and submit a report to the procurator fiscal in due course."
