AN Alexandria woman is appealing to find the Good Samaritan who came to her aid when she was involved in a crash on the Erskine Bridge.

Ashleigh McKernan, 21, was heading from Dumbarton into Glasgow across the bridge when multiple cars got caught up in the incident.

But one woman came to Ashleigh’s aid and held her hand until her dad arrived to take her to hospital to be checked out.

Now she wants to find the woman she believes was called Lynn to say “thank you”.

“She was the only one who came over to check on me,” said Ashleigh.

The Dumbarton Pets at Home worker was heading to Glasgow around 6.30pm on Tuesday, June 5, and a car ahead had broken down.

Ashleigh believes another driver didn’t realise it was stopped and swerved to avoid hitting it, instead hitting Ashleigh, who went into the barrier. A car then hit her passenger side and a van went into the back.

She told the Reporter: “At the time, I felt okay but once the shock wore off, I started to feel pain.

“A woman a few cars back was close enough to see the parts of the car flying up in the air. I was hysterical – it was my first time involved in a crash and she came straight to me and brought me a bottle of water and held my hand and talked to me to keep me calm.”

Ashleigh said Lynn told her she had just finished work and was heading to Braehead to buy some “mustard coloured” shoes and they were joking about that as a distraction.

After two hospital visits, Ashleigh said she was diagnosed with severe whiplash and nerve and muscle damage.

She added: “I just wanted to find her to say a proper thank you. She definitely made a difference at the time.”

Police Scotland confirmed there was a four-car crash on June 5. There were no serious injuries but one woman attended hospital.
