Police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly man died on Wednesday night after being struck by a car in Ibrox.

The victim has been named as 79-year-old David Spence, of Clifford Gardens, Ibrox, who was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital but died shortly after arrival.

Police say it appears that at around 9.20pm as Mr Spence was crossing Paisley Road West, near Copeland Road, he fell on to the road and was then struck by a silver Nissan Note.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

The male driver of the Nissan Note was not injured.

Sergeant Kenneth Canavan, Greater Glasgow Road Policing Unit, said: “Mr Spence is seen on CCTV crossing the road then falling to the ground where he was struck by a Nissan Note that was travelling east on Paisley Road West.

“Members of the public, including a passing paramedic, stopped to assist and Mr Spence was taken to hospital but unfortunately he died.”

“I would ask that anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident contact police at the Greater Glasgow Divisional Road Policing Unit on 101.”
