A man who died in a fatal road crash near Oban last Friday afternoon has been identified by police as they seek witnesses to the incident.

Sixty-two-year-old John Campbell Dickson, from Doune, died following the accident around 3.20pm on Friday April 2 on the A85, east of Connel.

Mr Dickson was taken to Lorn and Islands District General Hospital, but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The road was closed for around nine hours to allow a full collision investigation to take place.

Officers are still appealing for witnesses, and are particularly interested in speaking to the driver of a white Transit-type van who was in the area when the incident occurred.

Inspector Archie McGuire, of Police Scotland’s Argyll and West Dunbartonshire Road Policing Unit, said: ‘Our thoughts go out to Mr Dickson’s family at this difficult time.

‘We wish to speak to anyone with information surrounding this crash, specifically the driver of the white Transit-type van, who we believe may be able to assist with our enquiries.

‘I would also appeal to anyone with dash-cam footage of the area to please come forward.

‘Local officers can be contacted via 101, quoting reference number 2350 of 2/04/21.’
