A 28 year old man from Clydebank was killed after walking on the southbound carriageway of the M73 near Gartcosh in North Lanarkshire just after 5am on the morning of Saturday 15 March 2014.

As the man had been in contact with officers from Police Scotland shortly before the incident, the PIRC has been directed by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service to investigate police actions and submit a report to COPFS in due course.
