Passenger dies in road crash

Police Scotland in Forth Valley say a man died following a serious road collision on the A9.

The incident happened around 12.50pm on Tuesday 12th June at Balhaldie, approximately one mile from the Shell Service Station, heading towards Stirling.

A Mercedes E Class car collided with an HGV, before also striking a Vauxhall Astra.

As a result, the 72-year-old front-seat passenger of the Mercedes suffered serious injuries and he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The 71-year-old driver of the Mercedes was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, where he remains in a serious condition.

The road was closed for around six hours while the Road Policing Unit conducted inquiries at the scene, and officers are now urging anyone with any additional information to come forward.

Inspector Andrew Thomson from Forth Valley’s Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the man who died as a result of this collision and Police Scotland will continue to provide them with all the support and assistance they require.

“As part of our ongoing investigation, we are keen to speak with any motorists who were on the A9 on Tuesday afternoon and witnessed what happened. I am particularly keen to hear from drivers with dashcam footage who may have recorded the collision.

“In addition, anyone with any other relevant information is also asked to contact police immediately.”

Those with information can contact the Road Policing Unit at Stirling via 101 and quote incident number 1704 of the 12th June.
