Crash orphan loses fight for life

Police have been carrying out a detailed examination of the scene

A premature baby girl who was delivered as her car crash victim mother died has also lost her fight for life.
Lisa Scott, 30, and her 28-year-old husband Duncan were killed when their vehicle collided with a police car in Irvine, Ayrshire, on Saturday night.
Police said the baby was one month premature when she was delivered by emergency caesarean section at Crosshouse Hospital, in Kilmarnock.
Two police officers suffered minor injuries in the crash.
Hospital staff had said the baby was in a serious condition after being delivered but on Sunday afternoon Strathclyde Police announced that she had died.
The force said Mrs Scott, of Girdle Toll, Irvine, was driving a Ford Fiesta which was in collision with the police car on Towerlands Road at the junction with Pladda Avenue, East Broomlands, at about 2345 GMT on Saturday.
A force spokesman said: "Lisa Scott was eight months' pregnant and her baby was born by caesarean section.
Incident room
"The baby girl, who was delivered at Crosshouse Hospital, died earlier this afternoon.
"A full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash will be carried out and a report sent to the procurator fiscal."
The police car was not thought to have been involved in an emergency call at the time.
Officers have set up an incident room following the Irvine crash and have appealed for witnesses to contact them on 01292 664 098.
The couple were among eight people who died on Scotland's roads within 72 hours.
