An 83-year-old woman injured in a car crash on the A73 near Newhouse last month died on Saturday.

Maria Coppolaro from St Ives in Cambridgeshire had been in a critical condition at Wishaw General Hospital since the black Jaguar she was travelling in was involved in a collision with a silver Volkswagen Golf on Monday, July 27.

Giovanni Coppolaro (85) had previously died of his injuries received in the accident.

The 54-year-old driver of the Jaguar and 34-year-old driver of the Volkswagen Golf were also injured, but their injuries were not life threatening.

A full report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

Anyone who witnessed the crash take place, or who has any information that may assist police enquiries, should call the 101 number.
