Fire crews and police raced to the scene at junction 22, under Bellahouston Walkway, after the alarm was raised. One casualty, believed to be the driver, was being treated at the scene by paramedics.
An eyewitness said: “There are three fire engines in attendance, and the road was closed when I passed. “The fire broke out as Bellahouston Academy kids broke for lunch, so many of them were on the overpass as lorry was engulfed.” Police Scotland confirmed they were in attendance but have since left the scene.
But firefighters are still battling the flames. A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We were alerted at 12.39pm on Thursday, October 7 to reports of a lorry on fire at the M8 eastbound between junctions 22 and 21. “Operations Control mobilised three appliances to the scene.
“One casualty was in the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service and crews are still in attendance.”
