Witness plea after Selkirk A7 lorry accident


Police want to trace a woman seen waving her arms to try to stop a lorry driver involved in an accident in which a pensioner was seriously hurt.

Marion Fair, 84, from Selkirk, is in a serious but stable condition in hospital as a result of the incident.

She was struck by a lorry on the town's Market Place at about 15:15 on Monday.

Police Scotland are particularly keen to trace a woman who they believe saw the A7 crash and tried to signal to the lorry driver to stop.

Anyone who saw the incident or can help trace the passerby has been urged to contact them.
