Collision with tractor

Sergeant Ewan Pearce from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit said:

“Tragically, as a result of this collision, a woman has lost her life. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.”

“We ask anyone who saw the vehicles immediately prior to the collision – specifically the Polo on the B9128 and the tractor on the B9127 – or who witnessed the crash, to come forward and speak with officers.”

“The tractor had attached a spraying trailer. We would ask anyone who may have been recording with dash-cam at the location to check their footage and provide anything relevant to us as soon as possible.”

Those with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 0716 of July 28th, 2021.
