A road traffic collision has closed the A709, the road which runs from Dumfries to Lockerbie, one quarter of a mile west of Lochmaben on the Dumfries side of the town.
Police in Dumfries and Galloway have said that diversions are being set up but that delays are likely in the meantime.
A number of people have turned out in Lochmaben to protest against the erection of seven wind turbines between Torthorwald and Hightae.
The 126 metre high turbines could generate enough clean energy to power over 13,100 homes every year.
Local MP David Mundell was at the protest, in support of the opponents to the wind farm.
Police in Lochmaben are hunting thieves who stole a wooden owl sculpture.
The owl, which was on a woodland path, was taken last month.
It was a replacement for another owl sculpture that was taken two years ago.
The 23-year-old man who died in a crash near Lochamaben has been named as Michael Goldie from Lockerbie.
Mr Goldie was driving a white Honda CRX when the incident happened at around 10.15pm last night (30th January).
He died at the scene.
A 21-year-old male passenger was taken to Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary after sustaining serious injuries.
