Horse dead after road crash

A HORSE has been destroyed and its rider injured after a collision with a car near to New Abbey.

Witnesses are being sought to the road crash which happened at about 3.50 pm on Monday on the A710 at the entrance to Ardwall Mains.
At that time a silver coloured Peugeot 306 car was in collision with a horse and rider.
The rider was thrown from the horse and received minor scrapes and bruising.
However, the horse received an injury to a leg and as a result had to be put down.
Constable Allister Queen of Police Scotland in Dumfries said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have been using the A701 near to Ardwall Mains to call us if they either witnessed the collision or indeed saw either the horse or the car prior to the crash.
“Police Scotland can be contacted at Dumfries through 101.”
