Teenage boy, 19, dies after car collides with tree as police investigate crash

A teenage boy has tragically died after his car crashed into a tree in the early hours of this morning, police have confirmed.

Police Scotland said a white Vauxhall Corsa left the eastbound part of the A70 at Coylton, South Ayrshire, and hit a tree before 1.20am.

The 19-year-old driver was alone in the car at the time and no other vehicles were involved.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward and speak to them.

Sergeant Kevin Blackley, of the Ayrshire road policing unit, said he thought there may have been witnesses.

He said: “Although the crash happened in the early hours of the morning, from our enquiries so far, we know there were a number of cars on the road around the time of the collision.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area in the early hours of this morning, particularly between Dobbies Garden Centre, Ayr and the town of Coylton.”

Any information, including dashcam footage, can be passed to police via 101 quoting reference number 0319 of December 13, 2020.
