EMERGENCY services were called out to a two-car accident near Tyninghame last night (Friday).

Firefighters from East Linton and Dunbar assisted the Scottish Ambulance Service at the scene shortly before 7pm.

One motorist, who was on the scene, told the Courier a number of people on the scene were quick to try to help those in need.

They said: “I arrived, three cars and four helpers were on scene, and asked if I could help.

“There were very helpful bystanders one or two like myself with first aid training who were managing traffic and one helping the female driver.

“I saw the male driver was trapped, tried to assess danger, noticed smoke in car but quickly realised this was from airbags, others had ensured ignition off.

“The male driver was lucid and talking, in pain, clearly a serious issue.

“We all kept him talking and tried to have him remain calm when we called the emergency services.”

It is thought the accident involved a black car and a blue Porsche Boxster.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “At around 6.55pm on Friday, June 26, emergency services were called to the A198 between Lawhead and Tyninghame, following a two-car crash.

"There were not believed to be any serious injuries and the road was partially blocked for two hours before the cars were uplifted.”
