THE teen killed in a hit-and-run after she was mowed down by a driver racing on the wrong side has been named locally.

Robyn Fryar, 15, was crossing a road in Paisley, near Glasgow, when she was hit by the speeding VW Golf at around 2am this morning.

A man, 20, has been arrested in connection with the tragic crash.

Robyn was taken to hospital for treatment but died a short time later.

Devastated pals have paid tribute to the 15-year-old on social media today.

Abigail Anna Ferguson said: “Never thought this would ever happen, especially to you, you’ve been my best friend and one of the only people who has stuck by me through everything.

“You’re an amazing, unbelievable person who I never deserved to have in my life but you were my best friend and I’ll never find anyone like you.

“You were taken too soon and I’ll always miss you, thank you for everything. I love you.”

Ben Morrison wrote: “Taken far too soon, loveliest girl ever, rest easy Robyn you will be missed greatly by everyone.”

A Twitter user said: “RIP to an amazing girl took too fast I send all my love to Robyn’s closest friends and all her family. What an angel will be loved and missed forever.”

Det Insp Allan Kelly, from Greater Glasgow Police, said: “The young girl was with four friends when she stepped on to the road and was hit by the car which was driving at speed on the wrong side of the road in tandem with another car.

“The driver initially got out of the car but then went back in and drove off towards Gleniffer Rd, Paisley.

We know that the car, a small hatchback, possibly a VW Polo, was damaged as a result of the collision. It had a cracked windscreen and bumper.”

Police have asked anyone information or those with dashcam footage of the incident to come forward.
