Seven hurt in crash

The Galloway News - - DUMFRIES INFIRMARY -

Seven teenagers es­caped with mi­nor in­juries af­ter a three–car crash out­side Springholm on Fri­day night.

The in­ci­dent, which hap­pened around 11pm on the Dum­fries side of the vil­lage, in­volved a Ford Fi­esta ST, a VW Golf and an Audi A4.

All three cars were ex­ten­sively dam­aged af­ter ca­reer­ing off the road and crash­ing into a field. One of the cars au­to­mat­i­cally alerted emer­gency ser­vices to the crash.

None of the seven, all aged be­tween 16 and 19, sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries. Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses. PCTam­sin Tye­son said:“This was a se­ri­ous col­li­sion and could eas­ily have re­sulted in se­ri­ous if not fa­tal in­juries.

“We un­der­stand the ve­hi­cles were all trav­el­ling to­gether and want to speak to any­one who may have seen the ve­hi­cles be­tween Dum­fries and the crash at Springholm. I would ask any­one who has dash-cam footage of the ve­hi­cles to con­tact Po­lice Scot­land.”
