Police are investigating after a group of young people were “almost struck” by a 4×4 in Aberdeen.
The vehicle mounted the pavement in Mastrick’s Invercauld Road at around half past five yesterday evening, coming close to a group of youngsters.
Quarryhill School sits between Invercauld Road and Birkhall Parade but it is unclear if the youths were close by to the building at the time.
It’s described as a large silver 4×4 with tinted windows, possibly a BMW or Jeep.
The driver is a thin man aged between 30 and 40, with brown hair and a local accent.
Investigating Officer PC James Whittall said: “This incident occurred when Invercauld Road was busy with pedestrians and motorists and we are keen to trace the driver of the vehicle.
“I am appealing to anyone that may have witnessed this incident or seen a similar vehicle in the area to get in touch with the Police.
“Also similarly, if the driver recognises themselves from this appeal I would ask that they get in touch with us.”
Local Councillor Ciarán McRae said: “I’m quite concerned hearing about this, I understand that the area was busy with pedestrians and motorists at the time.
“I’ve never been aware of anything like this before, it’s the first time it’s happened in the area.
“It’s concerning being quite close to Quarryhill School just after the 5.30 rush hour time – I hope any local people who heard or saw anything will get in touch with police.”
