A PEDESTRIAN has died after he was hit by two cars while crossing a city road.

Charles Gilmour, of Castlemilk Drive in Glasgow, was hit as he crossed Carmunnock Road in the Castlemilk area of the city at around 7.30pm last night.

Mr Gilmour, 41, was hit by a northbound red Citroen Picasso and then a black Audi 800 travelling south as he crossed the road near to the Co-op.

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

Constable Gavin Irvine, of the Glasgow road policing unit, 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.”

The road was closed for around seven hours and reopened at around 2.30am.
