The accident happened around 7.10pm at the roundabout to the village on the back road between Kirkintilloch and Bearsden.

No other vehicle was involved.

The elderly man and woman in the Volkswagen Golf were treated at the scene by ambulance but police said they are not believed to have been seriously hurt.
