A man who died after a crash involving an articulated lorry has been named by police.


The collision - which involved a grey Peugeot 307 and a white Scania articulated lorry - happened just after 4pm on Wednesday on the southbound carriageway of the A74(M) near Eaglesfield.

Mr Sharp, a passenger in the car, was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow by air ambulance but later died of his injuries.

The 39-year-old Peugeot driver, from Callander, was taken to Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. The 59-year-old driver of the articulated lorry, from Reading, Berkshire, was uninjured in the incident.

Sergeant Leigh McCulloch appealed for witnesses to the crash.

``We would also be keen to hear from anyone who may have seen either the grey-coloured Peugeot 307 car or the white-coloured Scania lorry as they headed south prior to the crash.

``Anyone who has any information which they would want to pass on can call the Trunk Roads Policing Group at Lockerbie on the 101 number.''
