Tuesday July 9th 2019 at 12:28 PM


Police are looking for a small, dark-coloured car after a 15-year-old girl was knocked down in Aberdeen.

The girl was taken to hospital after being hit on the A947 Aberdeen to Oldmeldrum road near Hillbrae Way at around 11pm yesterday.

The car, which had two men inside, stopped at first but then left the scene without speaking to her.

She was taken to the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, but wasn’t seriously hurt.

The car left in the direction of Aberdeen.

Road Policing Sergeant Andy Ramsay said: “The girl was taken to Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital for treatment and thankfully has sustained only minor injuries. It goes without saying though that the outcome of this completely reckless act could have been much worse.

“It is crucial we identify this small, dark-coloured vehicle and extensive enquiries are ongoing in the Newmachar area including reviewing private and public CCTV. Do you have CCTV footage of the A947 into Aberdeen and haven’t yet spoken to Police? If you have information please contact Police on 101 quoting reference number 4834 of July 8.

“Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 to remain completely anonymous.”
