Driver is charged after early morning collision

A 52-year-old man has been charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving in connection with an accident on Milngavie Road, Bearsden.

The crash took place at around 6.55am on Friday, November 7, when a black Hyundai Coupe lost control and smashed into the bus shelter next to the entrance of the Kilmardinny Estate cottages.

A local resident said: “I was woken by a large bang and wondered what had happened. I was shocked by what I saw. This is a busy bus stop, especially in the morning, so it’s lucky no one was injured.”
