Scots van driver dies after head-on smash with lorry just yards from hospital
A MAN has died following a horror smash between a van and a lorry in the Borders this morning. Emergency services raced to the A6091 Melrose Bypass, around 9.30am after reports of a head-on collision.
A van driver died on the Melrose Bypass, Borders, after a smash with a lorry
The silver Vauxhall Vivaro and the red DAF articulated lorry crashed just a few hundred yards from Borders General Hospital. The 42-year-old van driver was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.
An ambulance crew rushed the truck driver, 53, to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. Medics describe his injuries as serious.
A report on the incident will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal. The busy road was closed for almost eight hours as specialist road cops probed the smash.
Officers have urged anyone who saw the crash to come forward. Sergeant John Lang, of Road Policing East, said: “We have spoken to several people already who have witnessed this crash but are still keen to speak to anyone else who witnessed it and have not yet spoken to police. “Anyone with information can contact police via telephone number 101 quoting incident number 0736 of 1 September 2021.”
