The 84-year-old man was rushed to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow where he was later pronounced dead.

The victim had driven a red Ford Fiesta into the car park and was walking when the collision occurred with a blue Honda Civic.

“The pedestrian had driven a red Ford Fiesta car to the area and we would ask anyone who saw this car and the Civic prior to the crash to get in touch.

“Additionally, if anyone was in the area at the time and has dash-cam footage which may assist, I would ask them to contact us.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident 0817 of October 26, 2022.”
