Two hospitalised after A7 crash

Two people have been hospitalised after a crash on the A7 at Ashkirk, between Hawick and Selkirk.

It happened at around 5:45pm on Monday 9 November, and police are now appealing for witnesses to come forwards.

An MG ZR travelling south was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa, which was also travelling south.

The male driver and a female passenger of the Corsa sustained leg and head injuries and were taken to the Border General Hospital for treatment.

The road was closed for around two hours while officers carried out an investigation at the scene and police are now asking anyone who can assist with their inquiries to come forward:

As part of our ongoing investigation to determine the full circumstances that resulted in this collision we are keen to hear from other motorists who were on the road at the time and may have witnessed the incident take place.

In addition, anyone with any further information relevant to this inquiry is also asked to contact police immediately."
