A TEENAGE motorcyclist is in a serious condition after he was thrown from his bike during a hit and run in Glasgow's East End.

Police are hunting for the driver who bolted from the scene following the rush-hour crash at 7.45 am on Thursday on the A8, Alexandra Parade, near to its junction with Alexandra Park.

Police said the victim, 18, was hit by a car and subsequently thrown from his bike where he then collided with a Transit van.

He was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he was treated for serious injuries.

“We are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and witnessed this or anyone that may have dashcam footage to help track down the driver of the white BMW car.
