Emergency services raced to the scene this afternoon

There has been no reported causalities at this time.

A police spokesperson said: “Around 1.30 pm on Monday, 2 August, police received a report of a road traffic incident involving a lorry and two cars at West Mains Road, East Kilbride.

“Police and SAS attended the scene. No-one was taken to hospital.

“Enquiries into the circumstances of the incident continue.”

An eyewitness who saw the truck mounted on the car told Lanarkshire Live: "There were three ambulances and a couple of police cars. They were blocking the road while dealing with it all, so it looks serious.

"It looked pretty bad, I saw a big blue lorry lying over the car as though it had fallen straight onto it right in the middle of the road.

"I really hope the person in the car is ok.

"Everyone driving up there was having to turn back and go a different way so best to avoid the area for now."

The Scottish Ambulance Service has been approached for comment.
