TRIBUTES have been paid to an Innerleithen woman who died following a crash on the A72 last week.

Donna Cameron, 36, was the front seat passenger of a Ford Fiesta involved in a collision with a VW Golf near Walkerburn last Wednesday.

Following the crash, police confirmed that six people had been injured in the crash.

But today have confirmed Mrs Cameron later died at Edinburgh's Western General Hospital.

Paying tribute, her family said: "Donna was a much loved family orientated person who will missed very much by her family and friends.

"The family would like to publicly thank all the medical staff at the three Edinburgh Hospitals involved in the care of their family, and all the emergency service personnel who worked hard to try and save Donna and her family at the scene of the crash."

The driver of the Fiesta, a 60-year-old man, and an 18-year-old woman were taken to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary with injuries that are described as serious but not life-threatening.

A 15-year-old girl was also taken to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary with minor injuries.

A 10-year-old girl from the vehicle was taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh with serious but not life-threatening, injuries.

The driver of the VW Golf, a 26-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries.

Sergeant Jill Kirkpatrick from the Road Policing Unit said: “Tragically, as a result of this collision, Mrs Cameron has lost her life and our thoughts continue to be with her family and friends at this difficult time.

“We are continuing with our inquiries into the collision and would ask anyone who witnessed what happened, and who hasn’t yet contacted officers, to do so as soon as possible."

Those with information are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 3788 of 29 May.
