|Road crashes claim lives of four |
(about 2 hours later)
A total of four people have died in three separate road accidents.
A 59-year-old man died following a collision between two cars in Dalry, Ayrshire, at about 1745 GMT on Friday.
Seven-year-old Benjamin Paton was killed in a two-vehicle collision on the A9 at the Tibbermore junction near Perth at about 1820 GMT.
Two men, aged 23 and 24, died at the scene when a car left the carriageway on the A947 south of Turriff in Aberdeenshire at about 2100 GMT.
The Ayrshire crash occurred when a man driving a Vauxhall Corsa along Townsend Street appeared to have lost control of the vehicle and collided with a Mazda 323 travelling in the opposite direction.
In the Perth accident, firefighters from Tayside Fire and Rescue cut Benjamin's father Allan free from the wreckage.
He is in a serious condition in Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.
It is understood the car in the Aberdeenshire crash plunged down an embankment at an accident blackspot.
