Road Policing Officers are appealing for information after a serious road crash on the A74(M) near to Beattock on Saturday, 9 July.

Around  1.40pm on Saturday afternoon, a 37-year-old man was driving a Mercedes C250 southbound, just south of J15 at Beattock, when it appears the vehicle lost control and came off the road.

Police and Ambulance attended and a 35-year-old woman who had been a passenger in the Mercedes was taken by Air Ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where hospital staff describe her condition as serious but stable.

The 37-year-old driver and two rear passengers aged 6 and 9 years did not require medical treatment.
