Fatal Accidents on stretch of A68 (15/11/2016) (R014726)

Thank you for your email dated 9 November 2016 in which you requested the following information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA):

·         all information on all fatal accident inquiries that have occurred on a stretch of A68, as displayed in the attached map, over the past ten years. The stretch of road is the red route from the roundabout at the top middle down to Pathhead at the bottom right.

I have made enquiries as to whether it would be possible to obtain this information from our operational database. 

Firstly, I can explain that the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service’s case management database is a live, operating database.  It is designed to meet our business needs in relation to the processing of cases and the information within it is structured accordingly.  We do not have a separate statistical database, and hold only operational data needed for business purposes.

I have completed my search for the information you have requested and I can advise that there are no records held regarding Fatal Accident Inquiries for deaths on this specific stretch of road.
