The Galloway News - - GALLOWAY VIEW -

STUART GILLE­SPIE An 82-year-old woman was killed in a road crash near Dal­beat­tie on Thurs­day night.

Two Vaux­hall As­tras were in­volved in the smash on the A710, which hap­pened be­tween Dal­beat­tie and Kipp­ford at around 9.35pm.

He­len McCa l l u m, from Kil­marnock, was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

Three other oc­cu­pants of the cars – an 83-year-old man, a 23-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, were taken to Dum­fries and Ga l l oway Royal In­fir­mary.

The road was closed for sev­eral hours so that po­lice could carry out an ac­ci­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Sergeant Paul Dodds said: “An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way to es­tab­lish the cir­cum­stances of the crash.

“I am appealing to any­one who was on the A710 around the time of the in­ci­dent to con­tact us.

“In par­tic­u­lar, I’m ask­ing mo­torists with dash cams to check their footage and hand in any images which could as­sist us in our en­quiries.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call road polic­ing of­fices in Dum­fries via 101, quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 4370 of May 23.
