A MAN has been reported for road traffic offences in connection with a two-car crash near the SECC. 

There do not appear to have been any serious injuries, according to the police but the road is closed and drivers are advised to avoid the Clydeside Expressway. 

It is the third such crash on the road in the space of a week. We told last week how drivers were advised to avoid the Clydeside Expressway after another crash led to traffic chaos just a day after a similar incident. 

Glasgow City Council's traffic management team confirmed that that one lane of the eastbound carriageway of the A814 remained closed due to a car crash and that emergency services were on the scene.

They added that delays were still being experienced.
