One of them was badly burnt out and he feared the worst for the driver and any passengers but according to the police, amazingly, no one was injured.

However the accident did cause a lot of traffic disruption, with a section of the road closed.

Several people contacted us to say there was a tailback of cars going into Bearsden and also in the other direction towards the Clyde tunnel.
