Police are appealing for information after a 67-year-old was hit by a bus at a notorious junction in Glasgow.
The pedestrian was struck at a crossing on Glasgow’s Queen Street, the final turn before the street becomes pedestrianised. The incident, which occurred as she crossed the junction, led to the woman being trapped under the bus. She was removed and treated for non-life threatening injuries at Glasgow’s Royal Infirmary.
The road, which was shut for more than two hours, has been an area of concern for pedestrians, drivers and police alike with limited space for larger vehicles.
The crash occurred after a number of high-profile road traffic accidents in Glasgow with two pensioners losing their life after being hit by a bus on the same stretch of road. Another high profile incident occurred on the same stretch of road in the Glasgow Bin Lorry Crash.
The incident occurred a few days after police had announced that they would have more police officers at dangerous junctions to ensure that drivers are following safety instructions and that pedestrians and other vulnerable road users are not at risk.
