A 9-year-old boy was taken to hospital after being hit by a car in Aberdeen.
The boy was cycling on Garthdee Road, Bridge of Dee, near the roundabout for B&Q and Sainsbury’s, when he was hit by a Volkswagen Passat just after 2.30pm yesterday, police said.
Paramedics treated him at the scene and took him to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where he was found to have escaped with no broken bones.
Garthdee Road was closed eastbound for about two hours, reopening just after 5pm, but the westbound side of the road was unaffected.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We received a call at 2.36pm and it appears to be a collision between a vehicle and a child.
“The boy was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to be looked over. He was kept in hospital overnight.
“He was complaining of pain in his back and pelvic area, but suffered no broken bones.”
