Appeal after serious collision on M9

Published 04 September 2019

Police in Forth Valley are appealing for witnesses following a serious road collision on the M9.

The incident happened around 7.10am on Tuesday 3rd September on the Eastbound carriageway at Junction 7.

A black Ford Focus was traveling along the M876 off-slip towards the M9 when the driver lost control and collided with a yellow Mercedes Sprinter cherry picker vehicle.

As a result, the 32-year-old male driver of the Ford sustained a number of serious injuries and was taken by helimed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow, where he remains in a serious condition.

Road Policing Officers responded with other emergency services and closed the road for around four and a half hours while they conducted an investigation at the scene.

Anyone with information that can assist these ongoing inquiries is asked to come forward.

Sergeant David Marr from the Road Policing Unit in Stirling said: "This was a very serious collision that left one of the drivers with significant injuries and resulted in significant delays on the M9, due to the road closures that had to be implemented.

"We are still working to establish the full circumstances of this incident and would urge any motorists who witnessed what happened, but who have yet to speak with us, to contact police immediately.

"Likewise, if your vehicle is fitted with a dash-cam that may have captured the collision take place then please provide this to us."
