Police appeal for witnesses after collision in Annan

Annan police are appealing for witnesses after a collision involving a 72-year-old woman pedestrian and a passing vehicle.

It happened at the junction between Downies Wynd and High Street at around 12.00pm on Wednesday 17th September.

The pensioner was not seriously injured, and did not need medical attention.

The police are asking anyone with information to get in touch.

Four injured on Scottish Borders roads

Three people have been left seriously injured and one other is in a stable condition in hospital following three separate road collisions in the Scottish Borders.

All of the crashes happened in different locations on Friday 28th June.

The seriously injured are a 90-year-old woman, a 21-year old man and a 45-year-old man.

Sergeant Brian Jones, from J Division (Lothians and Scottish Borders) Road Policing Unit, Police Scotland, said:

While we cannot say that these collisions came as a direct result of the road conditions, there was a steady drizzle in the Scottish Borders yesterday morning, and police dealt with a number of other, less serious collisions that occurred as a result of drivers traveling too fast on wet roads.

Police Scotland is committed to keeping people safe, and we would appeal to motorists to always take account of road and weather conditions when driving, especially in rural areas where there is a greater chance of a collision occurring.

A momentary lapse in concentration can have a devastating impact, and it is vital that drivers take care and adapt their driving to suit the conditions.

– Sergeant Brian Jones, Police Scotland
