Duns woman in hospital following fatal crash

A NEW mum educated at Berwickshire High School is fighting for her life in hospital following a crash which killed her boyfriend in Edinburgh.

Christina Vibert was the passenger in the car driven by 22-year-old partner Ross Graham which collided with a lorry on Sunday afternoon.

Mr Graham was killed but Ms Vibert, 26, was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where she is being treated for serious injuries.

Police closed the road for around five hours while they conducted their investigation and officers are keen to hear from anyone with information.

The couple, who live in Edinburgh, had celebrated the birth of daughter Cali last month.

Road policing sergeant Andy Gibb said: “We continue to investigate the full circumstances surrounding this collision, which, tragically, resulted in the death of a young man.

“Road users who were in the area of the Clovenstone Roundabout at around 1.30pm on Sunday are asked to come forward if they have information that can help us establish why this incident occurred.

“Similarly, anyone with any other information relevant to this investigation is also asked to contact police immediately.”
