A MAN was killed on the A9 last night following a car crash between Bridge of Allan and Dunblane.

The driver's Honda Civic collided with a Mercedes Sprinter van and a Volvo articulated lorry at around 6.25pm at the Keir Roundabout.

Despite efforts from the emergency services, the 25-year-old died as a result of his injuries.

The 26-year-old female passenger in the Honda Civic was seriously injured and remains in hospital, while the 41-year-old driver of the Mercedes Sprinter was also injured and remains in hospital.

The A9 was closed in both directions and reopened around midnight.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Sergeant Michael Montague, of Forth Valley road policing unit, said: "A man has died in this collision and a passenger and one other driver seriously injured and we are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision.

"Anyone with information that can assist us with our ongoing inquiries is asked to contact officers via 101."
