A man who died after being found lying injured on a road is believed to have been struck by a vehicle, police said.
Officers are urging the driver to come forward, saying they “must find answers” for the family of Kieran Paul Murray, who have been left “devastated”.
The 23-year-old was found by members of the public on the A807 Balmore Road near to the Allander Toll Roundabout just north of Glasgow at about 9.40pm on Wednesday.
He was around 500 metres east of the roundabout, just before Bardowie village near to the 30mph road traffic signs.
Police said a post-mortem examination has found that he appears to have been struck by a vehicle.
Emergency services took him to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he was then transferred to Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment to a serious head injury.
He was pronounced dead in hospital on Friday morning.
Detective Chief Inspector Gillian Grant, from Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, said: “Investigations into the cause of Kieran’s death have found it is likely he was struck by a vehicle, which led to him being discovered lying seriously injured on Balmore Road.
“I would urge anyone who was in the area of Balmore Road on Wednesday night and noticed anything which could be helpful to our inquiries to please get in touch.
“It is possible that the driver of the vehicle may not have been aware they hit Kieran, or may now be frightened to come forward, but I would like to urge you to please contact police.
“A young man has lost his life, leaving his family utterly devastated, and we must find answers for them.
“Likewise, I would urge any motorists with dashcam footage, who were in the vicinity around the time of the incident, to check in case they captured anything of importance.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland through 101, quoting reference number 3599 of Wednesday, 7 October, 2020.
