The man sustained a serious head injury after being hit by Vauxhall and was taken to hospital where doctors describe his condition as serious but stable.
A man is in a serious condition in hospital after he was knocked down by a car in the early hours of the morning.
Officers from Police Scotland are appealing for information after the man was struck by a Vauxhall car in Glasgow.
At around 3.45am, the 30-year-old man was walking along John Knox Street when he was knocked down near to Wishart Street in the east end of the city.
The 48-year-old driver of the Vauxhall contacted emergency services. He was uninjured but has been left very shaken by the incident.
The man sustained a serious head injury and was initially taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary but later transferred to the Southern General Hospital where medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.
Sergeant Jo McPherson from the Roads Policing Complex said: "Despite it being in the early hours of the morning this route can often be busy with taxis and cars as people make their way out of the city centre.
"Officers from Road Policing are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area around the time of the incident to come forward.
"The area is also overlooked by residential flats and it's possible someone may have witnessed the crash from their flat.
"If you have any information, please contact officers on telephone number 0141 532 6443."
