Detectives are currently hunting for the occupants of a black Mercedes C-Class which left the scene and was last seen heading north on B902 New Carron Road.

Shortly before the fatal crash, there was an altercation involving the occupants of the Vauxhall and the Mercedes outside an address in Foundry Street, Falkirk.

The altercation led to a “dangerous” pursuit of the Vauxhall leading to New Carron Road which caused it to crash with a Volkswagen Tiguan.

The 22-year-old passenger of Ms Wilson’s Vauxhall Vectra was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for treatment while the 39-year-old man, who was driving a black Volkswagen Tiguan, suffered minor injuries.
