OAP hurt in two-car smash
A pensioner was rushed to hospital after a two- car smash at a busy Paisley junction yesterday.
The driver, who is in his 80s, was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital after his Vauxhall Corsa was in a collision with a Range Rover.
Emergency crews rushed to the scene close to the Watermill Hotel at Gordon Street’s junction with Bridge Street and Mill Street.
The intersection was closed for several hours causing tailbacks across the town.
Officers were seen examining the badly damaged silver Corsa as they investigated the crash, with traffic cops taking measurements on the road.
The left wheel of the vehicle was buckled, and the air bag had deployed from the impact.
The black Range Rover sustained damage to the front right, and officers were
again seen checking out the motor.
A Police Scotland spokesman said officers were carrying out an investigation into the incident.
He said:“We were called to reports of a road traffic accident involving two vehicles at Gordon Street’s junction with Bridge Street and Mill Street.
“A male in his 80s was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley to be checked over following the incident.
“He was conscious and breathing but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
“The road was closed to allow officers to carry out an investigation.
“We are now investigating the incident to establish if any criminality has occurred.
“I would ask anyone who was driving in the area at the time and may have seen the incident to please get in touch.
“I would also urge drivers who may have been in the area at the time to check their dash cams to see if they may have captured the incident.”
