The family of a woman who died in a five-vehicle crash has said relatives are “shocked and heartbroken” following their loss.

Fiona Reid, from Seafield, West Lothian, died in hospital after the collision – including three cars and two motorcycles – on Monday.

Emergency services were called to the incident on the A7066 near Bathgate in West Lothian at around 4.30pm.

Ms Reid, who was one of the car drivers, was taken to hospital where she later died on Tuesday.

In a statement released through Police Scotland, her family said: “We are shocked and heartbroken at the loss of Fiona.

“She was a beautiful, caring woman who was loved by many.

“The family would like to extend their thanks to everyone who has contacted them with kind messages of support, it just shows how much Fiona was admired.

“We would also like to thank the emergency services and other motorists at the scene who assisted Fiona.

“This has been a major shock to us and we would appreciate our privacy at this time.”

Sergeant Paul Ewing, of the Lothians road policing unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those involved with this incident.

“We have already spoken to a number of witnesses about the crash but would still appeal to anyone who has any information on exactly what happened.

“I would also ask anyone that has any dash-cam footage that could assist with our investigation to get in contact.”
