A 47-year-old man has died following a serious collision on the southbound carriageway of the A9.

He was driving his Ford Transit van when he collided with the rear of a Volvo flatbed lorry, queuing in rush hour traffic.

The crash happened on the A9 Edinburgh to Perth road, about 600 yards (500m) from the Keir Roundabout, at about 17:45 on Wednesday.

The van driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed for six and a half hours with traffic being diverted through Dunblane.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Tragically, this incident has resulted in the van driver's death and our inquiries are continuing to establish exactly what happened.

"We are asking for motorists who were on the road and witnessed the collision to come forward immediately.

"Similarly, anyone with any further information relevant to this investigation is also asked to get in touch."
