Police are appealing for crash witnesses after the death of  54-year-old woman on the A82.

The incident happened around 3.50am today, one mile south of Crianlarich and involved a silver MG ZS car and a lorry.

Emergency services attended but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed in both directions until 2.15pm for investigations to be carried out.

Road Policing Sergeant David Marr said: ‘We are supporting the woman’s family at this incredibly difficult time.

‘Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the collision. I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the crash but has not yet spoken to police to come forward. I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have dash cam footage on the A82 between Helensburgh and Crianlarich prior to the crash which could help with our investigation.’

Information can be provided to Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 0426 of September 25.
