Police have traced the driver of the car involved in a hit and run incident.

A four-year-old girl was hurt after she was struck on Dumbarton Road on Monday afternoon.

She was treated for a serious leg injury at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

Police Scotland appeal for witnesses to come forward.

On Wednesday, police said the 27-year-old female driver of a grey Renault Captur car had been traced.

Police said enquiries were ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

Sergeant Roy McCarney of the Road Policing Unit said: “We have now traced the driver who is assisting police with their enquiries, however it is still vital that we speak to any witnesses to this incident, in order to confirm a full picture of the circumstances.

“This happened on a sunny afternoon at lunchtime, there will have been plenty of people around, and I would appeal to anyone who saw anything to get in touch.

“I would also like to reiterate our plea for motorists with dash-cams who were travelling through the area at the time to please check their footage in case they have captured the incident or a grey Renault Captur driving on the road before or afterwards.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland through 101, quoting incident number 1550 of Monday, 19 July.”
