The identity of the man involved in the fatal crash on Glasgow Road last weekend, has now been confirmed by the authorities.
James McDowell (59) was stuck by a passing car at 12.45am on Saturday evening. The emergency services were quick to attend the scene, removing the man to Hairmyres Hospital where, sadly he died a short time later. The driver of the vehicle and his passengers did not require medical treatment.
We would like to take this opportunity, as we hope you will here, to express sincere sympathies to James’s family at this sad time and trust people will respect their privacy this week.
