Two drivers have been seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash on the A75 near Castle Douglas.

The accident happened at about 11:55 on Tuesday at the east junction with the B794 Dalbeattie to Corsock road.

A 48-year-old Springholm man driving a red Nissan van and a 70-year-old man from Dalbeattie in a red VW Tiguan car were taken to Dumfries Infirmary.

Police Scotland said a 57-year-old man from Stranraer who was driving a lorry had not been hurt.

All three vehicles were damaged in the crash.

PC Callum Kingstree said: "We are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed this crash and would ask that they call us at Castle Douglas on the 101 number.

"The road was blocked for over two hours to allow for the injured to be removed to hospital and the vehicles to be taken away."
