Appeal for witnesses to road death on B7081 in East Ayrshire


A PEDESTRIAN has been killed after being struck by a vehicle in East Ayrshire.

The 55-year-old man was walking along the B7081 ­Irvine Road in Crosshouse at about 8.55pm on Friday when the accident ­happened.

He died at the scene, Strathclyde Police said.

The 47-year-old driver of the Rover was uninjured, and stopped to help police with their inquiries. The force is appealing for any witnesses to get in touch.

Meanwhile, a driver is in a serious condition after a collision in Aberdeen involving a van and a lorry.

The white Mercedes Sprinter crashed into the lorry, which was parked in a lay-by on the A956 Wellington Road around 4.45am yesterday.

Fire crews were called to the scene and assisted paramedics in freeing the man.

Grampian Police said the driver, aged between 30 and 40, suffered serious injuries and was taken to ­Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Inspector Ewan Innes said: “The road was quiet at the time and obviously the weather and road conditions are a factor that will feature in our inquiries, ­although I would not wish to speculate at this stage of the investigation.”
