Tributes paid to 27-year-old man who died following A68 crash

A MAN who lost his life following a horrific crash on Borders road has been named locally as Stewart Ramsay.

The 27-year-old died after his silver Ford Fusion car left the A68, near St Boswells around 8.15pm on Friday, February 4.

Emergency services scrambled following reports of the crash but Stewart was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.

The death has left his friends and family totally heartbroken, and hundreds of people have taken to social media to pay tribute to the Borderer.

He was described as ‘one of a kind’ and a ‘lovely person’.

The road which runs between the Edinburgh City Bypass and the north of England was closed for around seven hours while investigations were carried out.

Investigators are now appealing for witnesses in their efforts to establish the full circumstances.

Sergeant Scott Kirkpatrick said: “Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of what happened and we are appealing to anyone who may have information that could help to get in touch.

“In particular we are asking for those driving in the area around the time of the crash to get in touch.

“If you have dash-cam footage that could assist then please contact us.”
