Road crashes claim lives of two men

TWO men have died following car crashes on Scottish roads.

A 90-year-old male driver died six days after he was involved in a two-car collision in Perth and Kinross on Sunday, February 17.

The elderly man sustained chest injuries as a result of the collision on the A977 at Blairingone and was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he died on Saturday.

The red Ford Ka he was driving collided with a silver Renault Megane. The man and woman in the Megane suffered minor injuries.

A police spokesman said: "The adult male driver of the Ford Ka sustained a chest injury and was later admitted to hospital. Sadly the driver's condition has since deteriorated and he died."

Inquiries are continuing and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

In a second, separate incident, a 32-year-old man, named by police as John Adams, died following a road crash in Kilmarnock on Friday, February 22.

Mr Adams died at the scene after his white Peugeot 205 left the carriageway and hit a crash barrier on Kilmaurs Road between Crosshouse and Knockentiber. His family has been informed.

Police are asking for information into the two separate incidents.
