A 40-year-old man and a four-year-old girl are in Ninewells hospital with “potentially serious injuries” after a crash on the A90 this afternoon.
Police confirmed that the occupants of a car had been taken for treatment after the incident north of Dundee.
The call came in at about 3.20pm with eyewitnesses reporting a car being wedged under a lorry.
One said: “It’s horrible. There are lots of emergency vehicles – police, fire, ambulance – and it looks as though there’s a car under the back of a lorry.
“It’s just up from the Claverhouse roundabout, around half-a-mile outside Dundee on the southbound carriageway.
“There are lots of other cars and lorries at the scene as well who obviously saw it. There are masses of vehicles here.”
