Fatal road crash - A817, Haul Road near Helensburgh

Published 04 December 2019

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road crash on the A817, Haul Road, near Helensburgh on Tuesday 3 December 2019.

Around 10.15 am on Tuesday morning, police and emergency services were called after a member of the public came across the crash which involved a single car, a blue Audi, and the seriously injured driver, a 65 year old man.

Sergeant Archie McGuire, Road Policing Unit, Argyll, said:

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the members of the public who came to the man’s aid and that of the ambulance team, the man died at the scene. He was alone in the car.

“We are working to establish where he was going and what happened to cause the crash.

“We believe that the car drove up the Haul Road from the A82 Loch Lomond side and was heading west towards Faslane but have yet to establish a timeline.  If you saw the car either on the A82 this morning, or indeed were on the Haul Road before 10.15 am, then please get in touch.

“Any information can be passed to road policing officers at Dumbarton Police Office through 101.  We would be particularly keen to view any dash-cam footage, if available, relevant to the time and location.

“Please quote reference number 0854 of 3, December, 2019, when calling.”
