Two killed in city centre after crash
Two people have died after being struck by a car in a city centre.
It is understood they were pedestrians who were hit by a Range Rover in Glasgow.
Three pedestrians and the driver of the car were taken to hospital after the accident just before 11am at the junction of North Hanover Street and Killermont Street, near to the city's Buchanan bus station.
Strathclyde Police described it as a "very serious accident".
A spokeswoman said two men and two women had been involved in the incident.
The Scottish Ambulance Service confirmed they had been called out to the scene and that two women had been taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, while the two men were taken to the city's Western Infirmary.
Strathclyde Police later said that the three pedestrians were walking on North Hanover Street when it appears the Range Rover lost control, mounted the kerb and struck them.
The two women who died were aged 18 and 20.
Hospital staff said the 36-year-old male pedestrian and the 50-year-old male driver of the Range Rover were in "stable" condition.
The black Range Rover could be seen on the pavement at the junction of the two roads. A lamppost was bent over the vehicle's crumpled bonnet and roof.
Wreckage from what looked like a car was strewn across part of the junction in front of a red Mercedes car.
Around 10 police officers were also at the scene and police tape created an inner and outer cordon diverting traffic from the area.
Police appealed for information from any witnesses to the incident, which happened at around 11am.
They said it was too early to say whether the incident could be weather-related.
