Sergeant Paul McPherson, of Dumbarton Roads Policing Department, said: “Whilst we were able to speak to a number of people last night following the crash, we’d still like to hear from anyone, particularly drivers with dash-cam footage who were in the area at the time.

“We’re also keen to speak to the driver of a black Toyota Avensis private hire taxi who had stopped to assist but left just before police arrived. He might have information that will help our inquiry.

“Any information can be passed to officers via 101. Please quote reference number 3779 of 24 September 2020 when calling.”
