M8 in Glasgow closed after crash around city centre with emergency services on scene

THE M8 was suspended this morning after a crash in Glasgow.

At around 7.35 a.m., the police rushed to strike between exits 16 and 17, where the motorway circled the city center.


The incident happened this morning at 7:35 a.m. just outside the Glasgow Fort

The officers blocked a section of the busy road and caused travel chaos across the city.

The road has been closed for several hours while police investigated the impact.

It is not yet known whether there are any injuries

A police spokesman for Scotland said: “At about 7:35 am, officers were called to a traffic accident on the M8 at J17.

“The road is currently closed and the police are on site.”

Traffic Scotland emphasized that the vehicles are currently in a queue when approaching.

A tweet at 10.15am said: “M8 CLOSED W / B due to an ongoing police incident between J16 and J17.

“All traffic W / B is currently leaving the lane at J16 (Craighall).

“The traffic is currently on the approach.”

Elsewhere in Aberdeenshire, amid the chaos wrought by Storm Arwen, a person has died.

Road networks and rail lines have been closed as parts have been left under a red warning from the Met Office.

A driver was crushed to death in Aberdeenshire – this is the third tragedy in the UK.

The 35-year-old was killed around 5 p.m. on Friday when the tree fell on his car on the B977.
