Man trapped in lorry after A9 accident

One of the men, aged 65, is believed to have been taken to Ninewells for treatment.

A spokesman for Police Scotland, Tayside Division, said: “A collision has taken place between three vehicles.

“Two are heavy goods vehicles, and the other is a smaller, Fiat Doblo-type van.

“There doesn’t appear to be any serious injuries, but one lorry driver is trapped in his vehicle.

“Our priority is to get the road reopened as soon as possible.”

He explained that, because of the nature of the accident and the size of the vehicles, it could take a while for the road to be cleared.
