Politicians have expressed their sadness after a 60-year-old woman died in a horror crash on the A90.
Emergency services – including the air ambulance – were called to the scene near St Madoes in the Carse of Gowrie shortly before noon Wednesday.
The collision involved a minibus and a lorry, and police later confirmed the woman, who was driving the minibus, had died.
The lorry driver and two minibus passengers were taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment.
Police Scotland has since launched an investigation into the cause of the crash.
Angus Forbes, Conservative councillor for Carse of Gowrie, said: “I was deeply saddened to learn about the fatal accident near St Madoes.
“The A90 is a trunk road under the control of Transport Scotland and I am sure they will look at this accident as well as others to see if any improvements are needed.
“I will be writing to them today to ask if they will include me as a local elected member in any decisions they make.”
He added: “My thoughts are with everyone involved in this accident, especially the family of the lady who died and the people who were injured.”
Fellow Carse of Gowrie councillor, Labour’s Alasdair Bailey, said: “My thoughts and prayers go out to the family affected.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland, along with other emergencies services attended the A90 near St Madoes after a road traffic collision involving a mini bus and HGV at 11.55am on Wednesday.
“Tragically, a 60-year-old woman died. She was the driver of the minibus. Her next of kin have been informed and our thoughts are with her family.
“Inquiries are continuing and anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting 1232 of January 16.”
