Tributes are being paid after a Campbeltown man was killed in a car crash near Stewarton on Saturday.

Ian Smith, 30, died at the scene of the two-car crash on the B842.

Police, ambulance and fire crews attended the incident which was reported at about 5pm.

The occupants of the other vehicle, a white Vauxhall Corsa, were taken to hospital – a 22-year-old woman to Campbeltown Hospital and a 19-year-old man to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.

The road remained closed for about nine hours while police carried out investigations.

Sergeant Nicola Taylor of Argyll and West Dumbarton Road Policing, said: ‘Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr Smith at this difficult time.

‘Enquiries are ongoing into the crash and I would ask for the public’s assistance with our investigation.

‘If anyone was in the area at the time of the crash, or has any dash-cam footage that can assist us, please get in contact.

‘I would like to thank everyone who has helped with our enquiries so far.’

Police Scotland can be contacted by calling 101 and quoting incident number 3087 of January 18, 2020.

Tributes to Ian, who attended Southend Primary School and Campbeltown Grammar School, continue to flood social media.
