A 63-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene following a collision on the A828 south of Appin yesterday afternoon.

Police and ambulance crews from Oban were called to the fatal accident, which took place just 200m north of the Creagan Inn, at 4.4opm.

A police spokesperson said that the man, who had been driving a red Vauxhall Meriva, ‘may have taken ill at the wheel’.

A Ford Ranger containing two adults and two children was also involved in the accident. Minor injuries were treated at the scene with no one requiring hospital admission.

An air ambulance was also in attendance but was not required.

The road was closed both ways from the time of the accident until 10.10pm last night while an investigation and clean-up took place.
