Police are appealing for witnesses after a 15-year-old girl was struck by a car on a north-east road.
The incident – which involved a small, dark-coloured car, believed to be an Audi – occurred just after the teenager got off a bus on the A947 Aberdeen to Oldmeldrum Road near Hillbrae Way, Newmachar, at around 11pm last night.
The vehicle, with two males inside, initially stopped, however they left the scene soon after without speaking to the girl, driving off towards Aberdeen.
Road Policing Sergeant Andy Ramsay said: “The girl was taken to Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital for treatment and thankfully has sustained only minor injuries.
“It goes without saying though that the outcome of this completely reckless act could have been much worse.
