Three Teenagers Arrested Over Fatal Crash Near Ayr
Three teenagers have been arrested over an alleged hit-and-run crash that killed a woman and left another seriously hurt.
Joan Price, 59, died in the collision on the A77 near the Holmston roundabout, Ayr, at around 9.30pm on Monday.
Her 39-year-old passenger was also taken to Ayr Hospital for treatment, and is said to be in a stable condition.
The women were in a Nissan Pulsar that was in collision with a black Volkswagen Golf. Two men in the Golf are believed to have then gone into an Audi A3 that had also been on the A77 at the time.
Three men, aged 17, 18 and 19, have now been arrested in connection with the incident and they are due to appear at Ayr Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
Ms Price was a member of the Dunaskin Doon brass band and a family picture released by Police Scotland shows her holding a trombone.
A post on the band's Facebook page said: ''The Dunaskin family are heartbroken and devastated to hear of the passing of our dear friend and fellow band member Joan Price, following a car accident.
''Joan was a beautiful soul, inside and out, who always had a kind word and a cheerful smile for everyone.
''The band send their deepest condolences to Joan's family as they begin to try and come to terms with their loss.''
Sergeant Kevin Blackley said on Tuesday: ''A number of people came to the aid of the two women in the car and called the emergency services, however we still would like to hear from anyone who was on the A77 around the time of the crash and who saw it happen.
''We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the cars - all three - prior to the crash and who can provide information about the way they were being driven at the time - this can be either on the A77 or on the nearby roads.
''Anyone with information that may assist our investigation should contact the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Irvine through the 101, number or anonymously through Crimestoppers.''
