Auchinraith Road Accident

What’s been happening in Blantyre today? Just before 8.00pm, earlier this evening Tuesday 5th May 2020, a two vehicle accident occurred in Auchinraith Road, near High Blantyre.

As messages came in from passers by, we chose not to post as we were unable to confirm at the time if there were any injuries and the road was still passable using side streets. An ambulance and police attended and closed off the road.

In the last half hour, residents living nearby have now confirmed there were thankfully no major injuries and ambulances left not requiring to transport anybody. As of 10pm, recovery vehicles had arrived to clear the road for re-opening.

Thanks to everybody who messaged in about this and hope the vehicle drivers are ok.
