THE woman who was taken to hospital following a serious two-car crash in Alloa has sadly passed away this week.

Pauline Easton, a resident of the town, was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital where her condition was described as critical following the collision just outside the police station on Mar Place last Tuesday, October 22.

The 51-year-old was being treated for her injuries but sadly passed away a week later on Tuesday, October 29.

Inquiries continue into the crash, which saw Pauline’s red Fiat Punto, travelling north on the road, collide with a silver Renault Megane, heading in the opposite direction.

Police, paramedics and firefighters attended the scene, close to the Marshill Roundabout, at around 12.35pm on the day.

The 51-year-old male driver of the Megane was uninjured and neither vehicles carried any passengers.

Sergeant David Ross, of the Road Policing Unit in the Forth Valley, said: “I would like send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Pauline at this difficult time.

“Our enquiries into the collision continue and I would urge anyone with any dashcam footage, or any information which may be relevant, to please contact us.”
