Man dies after being hit by two cars on Glasgow road

A man has died after being struck by two cars on a road in the south side of Glasgow on Saturday evening.

Charles Gilmour, 41, was hit by a red Citroen Picasso and a black Audi 800 as he crossed Carmunock Road, near to the Co-op in Castlemilk, at about 19:30.

He was taken by ambulance to the Victoria Infirmary where he died a short time later.

The road was closed for several hours for investigation work and reopened at about 02:30 on Sunday.

PC Gavin Irvine said: "A number of people stopped to try and help Mr Gilmour and we have spoken to them about what happened, however, we are still keen to speak to anyone else who witnessed the crash.

"This is quite a busy road and at this time there would have been a number of people about."
