Two killed in A720 head-on car crash

Two drivers have been killed when a car strayed into oncoming traffic on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

One car was travelling west along the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass, west of the Sheriffhall Roundabout, at about 0115 BST on Sunday.

It collided head-on with another car travelling the wrong way.

Both drivers, a man and a woman, suffered fatal injuries. There were no other occupants within the vehicles and the next of kin have been informed.

Lothian and Borders Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen either vehicle being driven eastbound on the westbound carriageway or witnessed the accident to contact them.
