Police said the other driver sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The road was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and later re-opened shortly after 5am.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the driving manner of either vehicle prior to the collision.

Witnesses should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
