Police Scotland

A COUPLE may have lain for days in the wreckage of their car after a fatal accident near Stirling, say Police Scotland. The force has launched an investigation following the discovery of a dead man and a critically injured woman in a wrecked Renault Clio, off the M9 on Wednesday (July 8).
John Yuill, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene, and Lamara Bell, 25, has been taken to hospital in Glasgow where she is in critical condition.
Police have admitted they received a report on Sunday morning of a crash, but for so far unclear reasons, that report was not followed up. The couple were reported missing after they had not been seen since leaving friends in the Loch Earn area of Stirlingshire.
Assistant Chief Constable Kate Thomson of Police Scotland said: “As part of our investigation into this incident, it has come to light that a call was made to police late on Sunday morning regarding a car which was reported as being off the road.
“For reasons currently being investigated, that report was not followed up at the time. Following a call this morning, officers attended the scene.
“Officers have notified the families of this update. Our thoughts are with both families at this difficult time. A full investigation is currently under way to establish the full circumstances of the incident.”
