Snowball throw caused Dumfries crash

Police are trying to trace a youth seen throwing a snowball at a passing vehicle which caused it to crash into another car in Dumfries.

The incident happened at about 15:40 on Monday on the town's Lochside Road.

The snowball hit the windscreen of a silver Ford Mondeo and resulted in the vehicle colliding with a passing silver Honda Civic.

The drivers received a medical check-up by ambulance staff at the scene but suffered no injuries.

Police are keen to speak to four male youths who were also seen in the area around the time of the incident.
