A MINIBUS driver who died in a crash with a car near the Kennacraig ferry terminal has been named by police.

The accident happened on the A83 near the ferry terminal in Argyll yesterday morning when a Mitsubishi 4x4 travelling south collided with a northbound minibus.

Andrew Rennie, 62, died at the scene while the 21-year-old driver of the Mitsubishi was taken to Campbeltown Hospital with minor injuries and later released.

Six of the ten male passengers on the bus were taken to Mid Argyll Hospital in Lochgilphead following the smash at around 7am.

One has since been transferred to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow and another to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

The remaining four passengers were taken to Campbeltown Hospital for treatment.

It is understood the minibus was transporting workers to a construction site.

The road was closed while police investigated the scene and officers are appealing for any witnesses to contact them by calling 101.
