A man is to be reported in connection with a road accident on the M876 which left a pensioner needing hospital treatment for “serious injuries”.
The 36-year-old will be charged with road traffic offences following the two-car accident near Larbert yesterday afternoon, which resulted in a Land Rover overturning and a 73-year-old man being taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
The M876 was closed northbound between Junctions 1 and 2 for more than five hours as emergency services attended the scene.
