A man has died after his car crashed into a railway bridge in Stirling.

The 25-year-old's black Honda Civic hit the bridge at Causewayhead Road, at the junction with Cornton Road, at 00:20.

The road was closed for four hours to allow investigators to examine the scene.

Meanwhile in Dundee, an 18-year-old man is seriously ill in hospital after his car collided with a wall at publisher DC Thomson's printing plant, on Kingsway East, at 22:55 on Saturday.

The driver of the red Peugeot 206 suffered a head injury in the crash, and his passenger was treated in hospital overnight for a fractured shoulder.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said it was involved in the rescue operation.

"Two male casualties were trapped," a spokesman said.

"One casualty was removed by ambulance personnel and the other casualty was removed by firefighters."

Police appealed for anyone who witnessed the crashes to get in touch.
