A Scottish Ambulance Service Spokesman said:
“We received a call to attend a road traffic accident involving a single vehicle minibus this morning on the A6089 near Gordon. Due to the number of passengers requiring assistance, we dispatched a large number of resources to the scene including our air ambulance, trauma and Special Operations Response Teams (SORT).
“Sadly, there was one male fatality and our thoughts go out to his family for their tragic loss. 23 other patients were treated by our crews and transported to Borders General Hospital, Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow for further treatment and care.”
