Road Policing Inspector Alistair Mackay said: “Inquiries are at an early stage and it’s important we establish exactly what happened here. I am appealing to any witnesses who may have seen the accident or were driving shortly before it to come forward as soon as possible. I would also ask anyone with dash-cam footage that could assist our investigation to get in touch.”
