Lamara Bell has now died.
Police Scotland confirmed late last Wednesday 8th July that it was investigating an accident [which occurred on Sunday 5th July] in which a man was pronounced dead at the scene and a woman was left in a critical condition in hospital.
It has since emerged that a call was made to police late on Sunday morning reporting that a car had left the road on the M9 slip road southbound near junction nine at Bannockburn. The report was not followed up at the time, a failure that has now been referred to Scotland’s police investigations and review commissioner [PIRC].
According to the ONS [Office of National Statistics] this road sees approximately 1000 cars a day, so while the police are investigated, the guilt has to be shared round the public in this area for such a tragic end.
John Yuill and Lemara Bell cannot be brought back, however, incidents like this must never happen again.
