Police in Dumfries and Galloway are appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic collision on the A75.

The three vehicle collision happened around 3.45pm on Friday 25 October on the A75 Gretna to Stranraer road at a junction leading to Arnmannoch, Shawhead.

A grey Volkswagen Beetle was involved in a collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa and white Ford Transit van.

A 22-year-old woman (driver of the Vauxhall Corsa) and a 65-year-old man (driver of the Ford Transit) were taken to hospital for assessment and released.

Sergeant Jonathan Edgar, of Dumfries road policing unit, said: “Given the time of day there would have been a lot of traffic on the road so we’re appealing for anyone who saw the collision to contact us. Equally we’re looking to speak to people who stopped to assist or had dash cameras fitted to their vehicles around the time of the collision.

“If anyone has any information, please contact us on 101 quoting incident number 2443 of 25 October 2019.”
