A MAN and a woman have been killed after a horror smash between a van and two cars on a busy Scots road earlier today.
Emergency services raced to the A75, at Annan, after it was shut down at around 6:50am today following the incident.
Officers received reports of a road crash on the trunk road near to the B721, involving a Peugeot Boxer van, a Nissan Qashqai and a Renault Clio.
Tragically, the 42-year-old female driver of the Nissan and the 35-year-old male driver of the Peugeot were both pronounced dead at the scene.
The 49-year-old male driver of the Renault Clio was uninjured.
The road was closed for several hours while officers carried out enquiries.
They have now launched a public appeal to help find any motorists who were on the road between 6.00am and 6.20am this morning.
Inspector Adnan Alam of the Road Policing Unit at Irvine Police Office said: “Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of the man and woman who died.
“Our officers will continue to support them as our enquiries progress.
“Our investigation is ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding this crash.
