An 82-year-old woman has died and three people have been injured after a crash on the A710 coast road in Dumfries and Galloway.

The road, between Dalbeattie and Kipford, was closed for several hours after the head-on collision involving two cars.

Emergency services were called to the incident at 9:30pm on the evening of 23 May.

Two men, aged 83 and 23, and a 20 year old woman remain in hospital.

Police set up diversions as specialist officers carried out an accident investigation.

An investigation is underway to establish the circumstances of the crash. I am appealing to anyone who was on the A710 around the time of the incident to contact us. In particular, I’m asking motorists with dash cams to check their footage and hand in any images which could assist us in our enquiries.”
