A pedestrian has been killed and a woman was arrested after a two-car crash that shut multiple roads in Glasgow city centre.
Police were called to St Vincent Street, near the M8, after receiving reports of a crash involving two cars and a pedestrian at around 7.40pm on Thursday.
A female pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 28-year-old woman, the driver of one of the vehicles, was arrested in connection with the incident but has since been released pending further investigation.
The condition of the drivers is unknown at this stage.
The road was closed for around eight hours while collision investigation work was carried out.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 7.40pm on Thursday, February 2, 2023, officers received a report of a crash involving two vehicles and a pedestrian on St Vincent Street, Glasgow.
