Crashvic­tim is­named

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A woman who died in a tragic ac­ci­dent on the A9 at the week­end has been named.

Fifty-one-year-old He­lima Ab­dulla Mass­abo from Glas­gow was a pas­sen­ger in a car when it col­lided with a lorry near Dal­nasp­i­dal.

A 57-year-old man was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. He was the driver of car. The lorry driver was un­in­jured. The north­bound and south­bound car­riage­ways were both closed for some time to al­low in­ves­ti­ga­tions sur­round­ing the col­li­sion, which hap­pened around 3pm on Sun­day, to be car­ried out.

A re­port will be sub­mit­ted to the procu­ra­tor fis­cal in due course.

En­quiries are con­tin­u­ing and any­one who may have wit­nessed the col­li­sion is asked to con­tact Po­lice Scot­land on 101 quot­ing 2819 of July 8.

The ac­ci­dent has prompted re­newed calls for safety mea­sures on that stretch of the A9.

In­de­pen­dent High­land ward coun­cil­lor Xan­der McDade ar­gued a 50mph limit should be brought in.

He said:“The A9 is a very dan­ger­ous road, es­pe­cially at that junc­tion where it is very dif­fi­cult to see the on­com­ing traf­fic.”
