Appeal for witnesses

Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident, which involved a silver Isuzu pick-up and a small Peugeot, to come forward.

Sergeant Scott Deans of the Road Policing Department said: “Our thoughts at this difficult time remain with those involved. Our investigations continue and in order to help piece together exactly what happened, I would urge anyone who may have seen either vehicle prior to the collision, or who saw the incident itself and who hasn’t yet come forward, to contact police on 101 or speak to a police officer in person quoting incident number 1012 of the 28 April.”

The accident happened at around 6am on Sunday 28 April. The road was closed for several hours and a 30-mile diversion using the A940 and A939 through Dava Station was set up to route traffic away from the crash.
