Pensioner victim of Paisley hit and run
A 77-year-old woman has been struck by a car in what police say was a hit-and-run.
The pensioner was walking in Seedhill Road in Paisley, near the junction with Lacey Street, when she was hit at around 5.05pm on Friday.
The car, described as dark and medium-sized, failed to stop and continued towards Mill Street.
An ambulance took the injured woman to Royal Alexandra Hospital where she was treated for a head injury.
Constable Kevin Craig, of Strathclyde Police, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the 77-year-old woman, which has left her badly shaken.
“Extensive inquiries are ongoing to trace the car involved in this incident and to establish who was driving the car at the time of the crash.
“The car involved must have sustained some damage, probably to the front passenger side, and possibly the windscreen, so I would ask that anyone who has seen a car that matches the description to get in touch.
“Seedhill Road would have been busy with motorists and pedestrians around the time of the incident on Friday night and I would urge any witnesses to the crash, or anyone who may have information on who was driving, to come forward to police as a matter of urgency.”
