Police in Glasgow have appealed to the public for information following a deliberate crash in the city's East End.

On Saturday, March 2, at around 6.30am a white Audi vehicle deliberately collided with a white Nissan Juke vehicle on Gartloch Road, near to Avenue End Road, causing it to leave the carriageway.

The white Audi, possibly a Q7 model, then drove off in an unknown direction.

Emergency services attended and on arrival officers found a firearm in the Nissan Juke.

The driver of the Nissan Juke, was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary to be treated for his injuries.

He was then arrested and charged with various road traffic offences and firearms offences.

Police enquiries suggest that the Audi and the Nissan Juke were in the Bargeddie Street area driving erratically and may have travelled to Gartloch Road together between the time of the two incidents.

Inspector Craig Warren, London Road Police Office, said: “Our officers have been carrying out enquiries since the road traffic collision and we now believe that the vehicles were driving at speed from Bargeddie Street and into Gartloch Road before colliding in Avenue End Road. We are trying to establish if the firearm recovered from Nissan Juke was connected to this incident"

"This incident appears to be an isolated one, however this does not take away from how serious this is.

“We are appealing for anyone who may have seen these two vehicles, possibly driving erratically, between Bargeddie Street and Gartloch Road before 6.30 am on Saturday morning.

“Think back, you may have heard or seen something that can help us. We would also ask for anyone with any dash-cam footage that could help us to come forward.

“Something which may seem insignificant to you at the time, may be the information we need.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 3582 of Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Alternatively you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where information can be given in confidence.
