A man has died after a car ploughed into five workmen at a roundabout in Dumbarton.

At around 8pm on Monday, May 9, a grey BMW 3 series struck five men who were working on the grass verge west of Lomondgate roundabout.

A 59-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency services.

A 37-year-old man was transported by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, where hospital staff describe his condition as “serious”.

The 43-year-old male driver of the vehicle and his 35-year-old passenger were unharmed in the crash.

Three men aged 38, 43 and 46 were taken by ambulance to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, and released after treatment.

It has been confirmed that the men were employed by Amey plc., an infrastructure services and engineering company.

A spokesperson for Amey said: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm that one of our employees died in a road traffic accident on the A82 yesterday. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with his family, friends and colleagues.

“We can confirm four other employees received injuries in the same incident and our thoughts are also with them at this time. We are working with the Police to establish how this tragic event occurred.”

Sergeant Hugh Niccolls from Dumbarton’s Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who died and his colleagues who were injured.

“Our enquiries into this crash are continuing and I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this crash, or who was driving on this road and has dash-cam footage to contact us.  I would also like to hear from anyone who saw the BMW 3 series car driving on this road before the crash took place.
