Ainslie Exton, 89, killed in Kilmaurs road accident

Police have named an 89-year-old woman who died after a road accident in Ayrshire on Saturday.

Ainslie Exton, from Stewarton, had to be cut free from her car following the accident on the A735 near Lochside Farm in Kilmaurs.

She was pronounced dead just after arriving at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock.

Police said the crash happened after the 74-year-old driver of a second car appeared to lose control.

Her car collided head on with Ms Exton's purple Peugeot 107 at about midday.

The 74-year-old, who also had to be cut free of her vehicle, is in a serious condition in hospital.

Police said inquiries are continuing into the circumstances of the accident.

They appealed for information from any other drivers who were in the area.
