Police have launched a probe after a teenager was tragically killed in a hit-and-run on a busy Glasgow Road.

The 18-year-old was rushed to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital after being struck by a vehicle at 12:20am on Saturday morning on Crow Road in the west end of the city.

He was later pronounced dead.

Police now confirm that a car involved in the collision did not stop at the scene near Anniesland Cross.

The road remains closed while investigations are carried out.

Officers have described the vehicle as light coloured and believe it could be a Mercedes A Class and have appealed to the driver to "do the right thing" and come forward.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Crow Road, Glasgow around 12.20am on Saturday 11 September 21 to reports of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle.

“An 18-year-old man was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

“Enquiries are continuing and the road remains closed.

“The vehicle did not stop at the scene.”

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 11 September 21."
