Police appeal after two killed in fatal road crash on B7024

Police are appealing for witnesses after two people were killed in a road crash in Ayrshire on Friday 20 October 2017.

Around 1430 hours on Friday afternoon, a white Toyota Corolla was being driven north on the B7024, High Maybole Road, Ayr, when it appears that as the car approached a left hand bend, it lost control, left the carriageway and collided with a tree before coming to rest in a field.

The 30 year old male driver of the car was found to be dead at the scene, as was his 22 year old female rear seat passenger.

Three other passengers, all men, aged 16, 16 and 34 years, were injured.

One of the 16 year old men was taken by Helimed to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. Medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

The second 16 year old man also sustained serious injuries and he was taken by ambulance to Crosshouse Hospital where he remains for treatment. Hospital staff describe his condition as stable.

The 34 year old man, who was a front seat passenger, is currently receiving treatment at Ayr Hospital where his condition is said by medical staff there to be stable.

Sergeant Nicola Taylor, Divisional Road Policing Unit, Ayrshire, is appealing for witnesses to the crash. She said:

“I would ask that anyone who was driving either on High Maybole Road, or in the immediate vicinity, who might have seen the car prior to the crash to contact police.

“Anyone with information that may assist officers with their enquiries can contact the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Ayr Police Office via 101. Please quote reference number 1867/20/10/17 when calling.”

High Maybole Road was closed for approximately eight hours (re-opening around 2230 hours) whilst officers carried out their enquiries.
