A woman has died following a two-car crash on the Rosneath peninsula in Argyll and Bute.

The 32-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on the B833 in the Rahane area on Monday evening.

Police said her silver Vauxhall Corsa was heading south towards Clynder at 17:50 when the accident happened.

Her car collided with an oncoming silver Ford Mondeo, which appeared to lose control and move into the southbound carriageway.

The 21-year-old who was driving the Mondeo was treated at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley for minor injuries.

His 15-year-old passenger was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow with a leg injury.

Medical staff said he was in a stable condition.

Insp Adam McKenzie appealed for information from witnesses to the accident.

He said: "I would appeal to anyone who was driving on the B833 yesterday evening, who may have witnessed the crash or noticed a silver Ford Mondeo driving on the road prior to the incident, to please get in touch."

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

The road was closed overnight following the accident.
