23 May, 2023 | Local

POLICE are investigating after a fatal crash on the M8 between Bishopton and Langbank.

A 30-year-old man died in the one-vehicle incident which was reported around 1.50am on Monday.

A red Renault Captur crashed into the barriers, westbound. The driver, the only occupant, died at the scene.

Sergeant Kenny Malaney said: “A number of motorists who saw the crash stopped and tried to help the man until emergency services arrived but unfortunately he did not survive.

“Although we have spoken to those who assisted at the time, we are still keen to hear from anyone who may have been on the M8 westbound that morning between 1.40 am and 1.50 am who may have seen the car prior to the crash or the collision itself and who has not yet come forward.

“Dash-cam video would also be helpful as it may have captured footage that could help our investigation.”

Any information can be passed to officers via 101, quoting reference number 0217 of 22 May 2023.
