Police Scotland have made a public appeal to find the driver of a car that struck a eight-year-old boy at Braehead Shopping Centre.

The eight year old boy was crossing the road, with his grandmother, when he was struck by a white coloured vehicle on the road outside the main entrance to Braehead shopping centre, off King’s Inch Road, Renfrew.

The incident happened at around 2.30pm on Wednesday, 11th August 2021.

One of the passengers from the white car got out to help the boy and he was removed from the roadway. The passenger got back into the car and the driver drove off.

Emergency services were not contacted at the time and the boy was taken to hospital by his family later that evening. Police were contacted the following day.

A number of CCTV enquiries have been carried out in an effort to identify the vehicle which officers believe is a Nissan Qashqai.

Constable Kelly Ferris said: “We really need to speak to the occupants of the white car, they may not realise the young boy was injured as a result of this incident and I would appeal to them to contact us. I would also ask motorists with dash cams and any members of the public who may have filmed the incident to get in touch.

“Their footage could aid us in identifying the vehicle and the driver.

“Anyone with information is asked to call officers at Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 1500 of 12 August, 2021.”
