A man has died following a crash between a car and a tipper truck.
The incident – involving a white Scania tipper HGV and black Seat Ibiza – happened on the B7007 in south Midlothian at around 3.30pm on Friday.
Police said the 52-year-old male driver of the Seat was pronounced dead at the scene.
His next of kin have been made aware, but formal identification is yet to take place.
Sergeant Jennifer Forbes said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who died.
“An investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances of the crash and the road was closed for approximately six hours to allow collision investigators to examine the scene. Diversions were put in place.
“I would appeal to any motorists who were in the area around the time of the crash to contact us – did you see the black Seat Ibiza immediately prior to the collision, and did you pass it on the road?
“In particular we would ask anyone with dashcam to check their footage as they could have captured an image which could assist us.”
If you have any information, call 101.
