A man has died and a woman has been left seriously hurt after their two cars were involved in a crash with a lorry.

The man, who has not yet been identified, was driving a Ford Ranger pick-up vehicle with a trailer containing a number of dogs in it.

His vehicle, and a silver Suzuki Swift being driven by a 43-year- old woman, were both involved in a collision with a Scania lorry on the A75 near to the Castle Cary Holiday Park at Creetown.

The woman was taken by air ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow with serious back injuries after the accident, which took place at about 2.45am on Saturday.

A 14-year-old girl, who was a passenger in the Suzuki, and the 25-year-old man who had been driving the lorry were both uninjured.

Police Scotland are appealing for anyone who was driving in the area at the time and who may have witnessed the collision, or has related dashcam footage, to contact them.
