Scottish woman dies few days after been involved in a car crash with her partner which police didn’t respond to for days despite it being reported.
The pathetic incident happened at the bottom of an embankment near a junction in Scotland, reports said despite the crash being reported to police, it took officers three days to respond and free the couple.
Police in Scotland has now admitted its failings ‘materially contributed to the death of Lamara Bell, who was still alive when they arrived on the scene.
The force pleaded guilty at the High Court in Edinburgh today to health and safety failings following the deaths of John Yuill, 28, and Ms Bell, 25, after their car crashed off the M9 near Stirling.
Their car had come off the motorway and was at the bottom of an embankment near a junction, where they had been left ‘exposed to the elements between July 5 and 8 2015.
When officers finally arrived at the scene, Mr Yuill was dead and Ms Bell, who was critically injured, died four days later in hospital.
The call alerting police to the crash had not been recorded on their IT system.
The office of the Chief Constable of Police Scotland admitted that it failed to ensure that people including Mr Yuill and Ms Bell were not exposed to risks to their health and safety by failing to provide an ‘adequate and reliable call-handling system’ between April 1, 2013, and March 1, 2016.
