Police Scotland are appealing for witnesses following the death of a man on a Renfrewshire motorway.

A report was made to emergency services that a red Renault Captur had crashed into the barriers westbound on the M8 between Bishopton and Langbank at around 1.50am on Monday morning.

The 30-year-old driver, the only occupant of the car, died at the scene.

Sergeant Kenny Malaney, from the Road Policing Unit, said: “A number of other motorists who saw the crash stopped and tried to help the man until emergency services arrived but unfortunately, he did not survive the crash.

“Although we have spoken to those who assisted at the time, we are still keen to hear from anyone who may have been on the M8 westbound that morning between 1.40 am and 1.50 am who may have seen the car driving on the road prior to the crash or the collision itself and who has not yet come forward. Dash-cam video would also be helpful as it may have captured footage that could help our investigation.

“Any information can be passed to officers via 101, quoting reference number 0217 of Monday, 22 May 2023.”

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
