Police have confirmed that there have been casualties in a three-vehicle accident but the number of people injured and their conditions is not known at this time.

The A9 is expected to remain closed in both directions for some time to come after the accident involving three cars by Dalwhinnie this evening.

A force spokesperson said: "A number of people have been taken to hospital but we are still awaiting updates from medical staff on the incident."

Police said a little earlier that A9 is currently closed to all traffic at Dalwhinnie due to a crash and is likely to remain so for some time.

Drivers are being advised to avoid the area and seek alternative routes.

Traffic Scotland also continues to report that the A9 is currently closed in both directions due to the accident and that the expected duration is unknown at present.

Emergency services were called at around 6.30pm after reports of the multi-vehicle crash by Cuiach.

Four appliances crews from Newtonmore, Kingussie, Grantown and Pitlochry are understood to have attended the scene alongside the heavy rescue unit from Perth.

Accident investigations are on-going.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said earlier this evening: “Around 6.35pm on Friday, 3 December, 2021, police were called to a three vehicle road crash on the A9, south of Crubenmore near Cuiach. The road is closed in both directions and enquiries into the cause of the collision are continuing.”
