A bridge was demolished and a road is completely blocked after a lorry carrying wind turbine parts crashed last night.
The trailer ended up in a field with the tractor unit upside down on the road after the collision on the A713 near Parton, in the Stewartry, at about 10.45 pm.
And heavy lifting gear will have to be brought in to remove it.
The Daf lorry which was towing a trailer with the bottom section of a turbine trailer on it left the roadway completely blocking the main road.
It is likely to be closed for a long period and motorists are advised to use the diversions which have been set up.
The vehicle was part of a convoy being escorted to the Brockloch Windfarm site at Carsphairn.
Inspector Campbell Moffat from Police Scotland’s Road Policing said: “The road is fully closed at present and will remain so until the heavy lifting equipment can be taken to the crash site to recover the vehicle and load.
“A full diversion has been implemented around the scene and drivers are asked to avoid the area where possible. No-one was injured in the crash.”
