Tributes have poured in for a 16-year-old girl who died after being struck by a car on Saturday night.
Sophie Geddes, from Knightswood, lost her life following the horrific crash that happened at around 7.45pm over the weekend along Great Western Road.
The youngster was rushed to hospital after the collision, near Garscadden Road, but died a short while later.
Sophie's head teacher at Notre Dame High School Rosemary Martin paid a special tribute to the teen who will "always have a special place in our hearts".
She said: “We are absolutely devastated by this tragic news. Sophie was more than a pupil at our school – she was a very valued member of the community and a joy to be around.
"She was bright, caring, loving and went out of her way to help others; a genuine Ambassador for our school.
"Sophie will always have a special place in our hearts.
“This will come as a great shock to everyone who knew Sophie and as a school we are supporting one another to come to terms with this painful loss; in particular, we hold her younger sister close at this time.
"We will do whatever we can to support Sophie’s close friends and family and keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”
