A 38-year-old woman who was involved in a car crash this week has died in hospital from her injuries, police have confirmed.

Marjorie Rafferty, from Carronshore, died in Forth Valley Royal Hospital yesterday after sustaining serious injuries when her Ford Focus collided with a Mercedes van on Tuesday at around 3pm.

Both drivers had to be cut from their vehicles by fire fighters. The Mercedes van driver received minor injuries.

The incident happened on the 60mph Bothkennar Road, which locals say is prone to flooding, and police are warning motorists to take care on roads at this time of year.

Sergeant Roddy MacMillan of Police Scotland’s Trunk Roads Patrol Group said: “This was a tragic incident and our condolences are with the family of Marjorie Rafferty.

“Our investigation into this collision is ongoing and we continue to appeal to the public for information.

“I urge motorists to take care when travelling on the roads, especially at this time of year when visibility and driving conditions can be significantly impacted.”

Anyone who witnessed this incident and can assist police with their ongoing investigation is asked to call 101.
