A WOMAN has died following a road crash in Motherwell’s town centre today (Monday).

Police have sealed off the area surrounding Muir Street where the crash happened around 10.40am.

Crash scene investigators are yet to establish the exact circumstances of how the crash happened.

But it appears a man was driving his car along Muir Street when he lost control, collided with two parked cars, mounted a footpath and struck two pedestrians.

Police confirmed a woman has died at the scene, and a man and a woman have also been taken to Wishaw General.

The road is currently closed and diversions are in place.
