M-way accident cars end up on embankment

TWO CARS ended up on embankments after an accident on the M74, south of Lockerbie, late on Wednesday afternoon.

Police, ambulance and three fire and rescue units, from Lockerbie and Annan, responded to emergency calls from other motorists on the busy route.

The south-bound carriageway incident happened near the Queens Hotel and close to Junction 18 (Lockerbie South) around 4.30 pm.

A Dacia Duster 4×4 vehicle, driven by a 40-year-old man from Hebdon Bridge, ended up high on a roadside embankment while the Skoda car, driven by a 72-year-old woman from Edinburgh, came to a halt on another slope amongst roadside trees.

The woman motorist was taken to Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary for treatment for a head injury but later allowed home.

There was only limited disruption to traffic on the southbound carriageway.
