A man has been seriously injured following a road crash involving a car and a pedestrian on Friday evening.

Police were called to the Clarkston Toll roundabout in Glasgow around 17:20.

The 86-year-old male pedestrian was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in "critical" condition.

A 54-year-old man driving a Mercedes GLE was uninjured and police closed the road for several hours to allow for investigations.

Sgt Scott Gourley of Glasgow's road policing unit urged anyone who was in the area who has not yet spoken to police to get in touch.
