Boy (5) dies after being struck by van in Glasgow

By Ben Philip

A five-year-old boy has died after being hit by a van in Glasgow.

The accident happened at about 3.15pm on Monday at Dalness Street, Shettleston, in the east end of the city.

The toddler was "seriously injured" after being struck by a white Ford Transit van.

He was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he died a short time later.

Sergeant Jackie Dunbar said: "From our enquiries so far, it would appear that the boy, a pupil at St Paul's (Shettleston) Primary School on Anwoth Street, Glasgow, was struck by the van, which had come in to Dalness Street from Tollcross Road, as it turned into a car park on Dalness Street.

"It was picking up time at the school and there were a number of people in the area at the time of the incident."

A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
