A 20-year-old woman was killed yesterday afternoon on the A1 near Grantshouse, in the Scottish Borders.
At around 3.40pm, a Mercedes Vito van was on the southbound carriageway of the A1, when it collided head-on with a red Scania articulated lorry travelling on the opposite carriageway.
The 20-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the van, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Unfortunately a young woman has lost her life and we are currently working to establish the full set of circumstances that led up to this collision.
"I urge anyone who was travelling on the A1 on Sunday afternoon and who remembers seeing either the Mercedes Vito van or the Scania lorry to please contact police if not already done so."
