Ambulance crews attended and the two male occupants of the Megane and a male police officer were checked at the scene.

The other male police officer was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary as a precaution but was discharged after being examined.

At the time of the crash the police car had been responding to an emergency call and had emergency lights and klaxon in operation.
