Police are appealing for information following a serious road crash in Dalry on Friday afternoon. 

Around 4.10 pm, a Mercedes Skip Truck was travelling north on the A737 near Carsehead Bridge when it crashed into the underside of a railway bridge. It then collided with a BMW car travelling south on the same road. 

Emergency services attended and the driver of the lorry, a 61-year-old man, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where medical staff describe his condition as stable but serious. 

The road was closed for several hours to allow crash scene investigators to conduct enquiries at the scene. 

The lorry was travelling from Ardrossan towards Dalry on the A737 and officers are appealing for anyone who may have seen the lorry on this journey to contact them. In particular, if you have any dash cam footage, we would ask that you hand any footage in to police. 

Enquiries carried out so far have revealed there were several HGVs behind the lorry at the time of the collision, however, they left the location prior to police arrival. There was also a man who was wearing a high visibility vest who approached the driver of the lorry at the time of the incident. Officers are appealing to these people to contact them as they could hold information which could assist the investigation. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Adam Steele at Irvine Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 2569 of Friday 16 November 2018.
